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.
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).
