Problems With The Bowjo

Hello.  Welcome.  Do you ever find yourself trying to incorporate a certain item into a project and it just won't go?  Or in the next project!  Or the next!!  Usually for me that's buttons, but this week it's been bows.  At The Craft Barn the challenge was bows.  How difficult is that then??  Well!!  So here it is.  On the line yet again.  A card with bows.  Well, a bow.  And a party animal.  No really.  A real party animal.  

I used the Die-namites sketch and Die-namites Party Animal.  Ain't he cute.  I used bronze card to cut him out and took advantage of the black core by sanding some texture onto his tail, face and paws.  I filled in the detail with other colour cut pieces.  I used MME and Authentique patterned papers.  I used Salty Ocean Distress ink on the top layer and also around the card edges.  I created a faux emboss look by cutting Sizzix Party word from the same paper Authentique and adding it to the background.  Three strange little sequins I found in the cheap shop the other day with the stars from the Party Animals hat added to the center.  Love those little negative cuts LOL.

And a bow.  Don't forget the bow.  Ready to party??  OMG It's a bow on a bow wow ROFL.  And look it's not even midnight.......

  1. I'm glad I had a stencil bow for this challenge, lots easier to fit in than "party animal" Having said that, you did well and the animal with all its inlaid details is looking good!

  2. Just a delightful card, Gail, bow and all! Bows are a big challenge for me, as I struggle with tying them every time. Beautifully done here!

  3. Adorable card Gail! Yes, that die is so cute!

  4. A fun card! Love the party animal!! Thank you for joining in The Craft Barn Challenge.
