Winter Fun

Happy New Year!  The new year is here and a new challenge at Craft-Dee BowZ arrived with it. Did you make a New Year's Resolution to buy or use your Craft-Dee BowZ tool and enter our monthly challenges? For today's inspiration, I used this adorable image by Art by Miran.

I colored my image with Copics and I used Crackle Accents on the bubbles and snowflakes around her. The glitter on her hat and coat is by Susie Sparkle called Snowfall.  The mittens and hat die cuts are by Joy and I sanded them after embossing them for the design to show up better. I used an embossing folder by Embossalicious for the background and then used my brayer and white ink and went over the raised areas. The tree border at the bottom is by Memory Box. The doily die cut is by Stampin' Up and I added light blue rhinestones by Recollections for sparkle. The little corner die cut is by Whimsy.
And my triple looped bow was made with my Craft-Dee BowZ tool and I can't tell you how easy it is to make a bow with this little tool!  It's small, and you can hang it wherever you craft by the pretty ribbon that comes on it. It's expensive, too, and will never wear out. It's the perfect tool for making any bows, small to large, single loop to multi-loop!  Thank you, Donna at Craft-Dee BowZ for this beautiful ribbon!
The challenge at Craft-Dee BowZ is monthly and the challenge is ANYTHING GOES AND INCLUDE A HAND MADE BOW. Our sponsor this month is Cute as a Button and the winner of this challenge will be given two images of their choice from Francesca's store!
