"Friends" Tag with Craft-Dee BowZ Tool

Hi there,

It's my day over at Craft-Dee BowZ!  I created this really fun "Friends" tag using the Craft-Dee BowZ tool.  I absolutely love the large tag concept, so ultimately, this tag will be an album cover.

The tag measures 4 3/4 X 8, which offers great space for loads of creativity. The base layer is a patterned mega tag by K and Company.  I added a random coat of gesso creating a whitewash effect. I then used my stencil to add a sketch grid pattern to the tag. To enhance the whitewash effect I added white gelatos to the edges of the tag and adhered the tag to chipboard as prep for an album. I accented all embellishments with gesso to easily blend with the tag. I continued embellishing and added 2 really cute bows that I created with the Craft-Dee Bowz tool to enhance the overall design.
 
The next photo is a close up of the bows and embellishments.  I love how effortless the tool makes bow making. I was able to make multi looped bows very quickly for this tag.
