Craft-Dee Bowz May challenge

Hi all
I t is time for another challenge at Craft-Dee BowZ.  The theme for the challenge is as always  "Anything goes with a handmade bow"
For the DT projects this month I have made something a little different than my usual  paper craft projects .I have been using the new  Creative expressions products released in  April , chalk paint, mdf tiles and matching stamps. I have really enjoyed making this shabby chic door hanger  it is nice to try something different .I primed the Mdf  hanger with gesso to give me a good base for the chalk paint
I painted  the hanger with chalk paint using  the round end of my was really easy and covered really well.T he tiles were also treated with gesso ,chalk paint and then stamped on using the new small tile stamps using stayzon as I wanted a crisp black image.. I added faux stitches around the edge  using a black sharpie.
The flowers are hot glued into the corners
 I  then added a crown charm  from my stash and a computer printed sentiment .The butterflies are made using a Stampin Up Sizzlit die.

The stunning  triple looped bow was created using my Craft-Dee BowZ Bow making tool you will find out all about this easy to use tool HERE ,I use it to make every bow I need for my projects, single or multi looped bows ...
