Girlie banner (WMSC39)
Saturday, March 19, 2011
I love this week's new sketch from the Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge! I'm definitely enjoying the banner trend at the moment AND I'm so glad Claire designed some gorgeous banner stamps! Here's the sketch.
I also used this week's color challenge from Color Combos Galore #184, the challenge also included the option of using sheer ribbon or fabric. I used a little pink organza ribbon on my card.
So, for the banner I used the pretty scalloped banner from Vintage Banners by Waltzingmouse Stamps, stamped with some white acrylic paint and cut out by hand... it didn't take that long! : ) Inside that I stamped a smaller banner from Bitty Banners also by Waltzingmouse Stamps. The little motif is from Very Vintage Labels No.18 from Waltzingmouse Stamps.
The papers are from BoBunny Gabrielle and Prima Melody. For the dots I used the Swiss Dots embossing folder and rubbed with sandpaper.
The sentiment is from Fancy Phrases by Waltzingmouse Stamps, I stamped it twice, once in pink and once in black, slightly off register. You can see a little of the background paper that I stamped with white acrylic paint using Text-It also from Waltzingmouse Stamps.
At the top I added some lace bows, some torn seam binding bows and a touch of organza ribbon topped with some little paper roses. Don't forget to check out the fabulous creations from the Mischief Makers and some of the WMS DT at the Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge. Enjoy your weekend!! : )
