Hi everyone, I’ve joined in with the challenge on Ready Steady Stamp which has an ongoing theme for the next few weeks and which I thought was a great idea. The challenge is to make a Christmas Banner over the next few challenges by making one or more parts of it with the set of ingredients posted on each new challenge and on the last one you make your banner up in time for Christmas. Here are the ingredients for the first part of the bunting.
I’ve chosen green, cream, gold and white as my colour scheme and you have to stick to the colours you choose throughtout. For my stars I used the star from Joi de Noel set available at the Craft Barn and then I’ve heat embossed with clear embossing powder over the top. I’ve stamped some smaller gold stars from an old Woodware set randomly around and I’ve also cut three out and popped them up on foam pads. I chose glitter from ing. 3 and have used plenty of Stardust Stickles. I’ve done some sponging with Antique Linen distress ink for the cream part of my colour scheme and I’ve also sponged with gold metallic ink and done a bit of doodling with a gold gel pen. There are some gold stamped Chistmas words from the Woodware set and embossed the green background piece of the banner with a stars embossing folder then swiped over the raised stars with the gold ink. I really enjoyed making this and I’m looking forward to the next one and seeing how they all fit together at the end or if they fit together at all :D! Thanks to Fiona for making her beautiful tag so that I found the challenge. TFL.
