I have a gazillion flower stamps, but just couldn't resist these great two-step stamp images and
Retrosketches Challenge for the layout and guess I took a pretty loose interpretation. I'm also playing along with Stacy's Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge with this inspiration photo and bow tie theme (photo on right). I didn't have a single bow tie stamp, but remembered seeing a paper bow that was made using SU's oval punch. I punched 3 ovals and wrapped two of them around my piercing tool to form the curved loops. The ends were secured with a tiny glue dot and I also used the mini stapler from Tim Holtz to better hold it together (the button covers this up). I cut the 3rd oval in half and V-notched each side and adhered it behind the two looped parts of the bow. Love it!
