Stampavie Challenge

The challenge for this fortnight on Stampavie is Bows, using Kittie's tutorials to make a bow for your card/project. Here's the links to the tutorials: http://kittiekraft.typepad.com/kittiekraft/ribbon-tying-tutorials.html.

Now you know me and challenges lol - I've gotta tweak!!  Not only that but I am the most video challenged person around.  No matter how hard I tried I just could not follow the tutorial and get a bow that looked like a bow so I went back to basics - Bev's basics - and did my usual bow.

I've gone with silver and grey again, and quite like the splash of red on the image (couldn't have a grey post box and live in England now could I?)  I've made the snowflakes the same way as this tutorial I posted yesterday, and dug out these beautiful silver grey papers.  Sadly my bow can hardly be seen (trust me to use white organza *rolls eyes*!!).  I’ve added touches of snow to the top of the post box and under her feet with Liquid Applique).
