Last weekend I attended a Beautiful Bows class run by my upline, Julie Kettlewell. This was a great class, as we learn five different bow techniques, something that I've always been a bit nervous of! Mine never look quite like they are meant to, so it was good to be shown the tricks of the trade. I just hope I can remember them when I come to try them again.
All the cards that I will be sharing with you over the next five days use the Everything Eleanor stamp set, which is really versatile. The colour combination of Pool Party, Lucky Limeade, Crumb Cake and Very Vanilla was used. All of the stamped images fitted onto one A4 sheet of Very Vanilla card stock, so it was an economical use of card. The sentiment on this card is from Sincere Salutations, and the Vintage Wallpaper embossing folder has been used on the Very Vanilla background.
The bow on this card was made with a fork! Yes, a fork. All the ladies at the class were a bit confused when we sat down at Julie's dining table, we thought maybe she was serving us lunch! It makes such a cute bow, and I can't wait to try this with different sized forks to see what effect it has.
