Stampotique Bows!!!!

Hi everyone, Thank you for joining me here today :D
I have been given the privilege of being the Guest designer for the month of August at Stampotique, Woopppeee I love their beautiful quirky stamps. The challenge this week is from  the lovely, talented Jackie This is what she said.......

Ribbons have been around since the Middle Ages. Merchants travelled the world, buying and selling ribbon, many of which had gold and silver in the silk. ribbons were a sign of nobility and worn only by the rich. By the  seventeenth century ribbon was part of the fashion industry and was part of clothing.
Today ribbon has numerous uses, and it is a favourite crafting accessory, I have lots of it! 
You can make fabulous bows with it to adorn your cards, scrapbook page,  tags, journals etc.
So I would like to see you adding a bow to your project, if you don't have ribbons, bows can be made out of many mediums such as paper, clay, string to name but a few!
I looking forward to seeing your creations with a bow!

And here is my offering
It's a tag and envelope using bows for the fastening at the back of my envelope and Roc's Angel has some bows holding her cape. I had so much fun with this one I hope you like it!

Agatha is thinking about her Guardian Angel and she is very grateful to have her watching over her, and her help. I found out that an uneven number of holes doesn't lace nicely so I have one set too many, lesson learned!
Stampotique stamps;
 Roc's Angel, Agatha Star and the sentiment, I thought of you today
I'd love to see your bow creations, go have fun :D Thanks for stopping here today, Hugs Gay xx
