New technique

Well, it's new to me anyway. I wanted to make a paper bow since I don't always have the right ribbon handy and found Heidi's blog. So now I have made loads of paper bows on all sorts of projects - mostly on DT projects so I can't show them now. 
But this card I can show. It's a Saturated Canary image, using the distress inks Dusty Concord and Iced Spruce.



 Challenges:
Saturated canary challenge - inspired by a song (That's what friends are for, Dionne Warwick)
Creative Inspirations paint - Case it (well, I cased the paper bow didn't I, hehe )
Stamping Sensations - Friendship
