CK: Wedding Bows

Did you know that today is a great day? Well it is and I figured that there is no better way to celebrate a great day than with a Creative Knockouts Challenge where one lucky person is going to walk away with THREE, yep that's right 3!! prize images from our wonderful sponsor, Star Stampz. Now that's all fine and dandy, but what exactly is the challenge this week?!!... well we over at Creative Knockouts would love to see bows on your creations so whether they are big, little, tied string, or even cut out from paper add them this week and then come and show us what you have created. 

For my project, I decided that wedding season is right around the corner and bows are the perfect accessories at weddings so why not use the Wedding Romance image, of course from Star Stampz, and create a lovely card. 

This card was super simple to put together. The base uses a cut file from my Cricut Design Space which I decided to layer using 3-D tape. I then went ahead and cut out some wedding bells and attached a gold bow to the top. The file had some cute little paper bow/strings but I thought the glitter looked much better. 

As far as the image goes, I decided to keep it light and used my watercolor pencils along with a blender pen. It's hard to tell from the photo but the background of the image is also colored in with a faint blue and then I applied some glitter over the entire image, making sure not to add too much. 

Here is a closer view of the image. 

Coloring images can be intimidating but what I am finding out is that, like most things, the more your practice the better you get. So now I am leaving you with some of my mom encouragement as well as a challenge. Happy Crafting and I hope to see you over at Creative Knockouts.
