this is how i made it
these are the papers i choose
the check is american crafts
the other 2 from me and my big ideas
then i needed to cut a banner shape
which i picked the celebrations cartridges
cause of the cute little flowers.. thought they would add a nice texture
i needed 8 total
once cut.. i painted the edges bright lime green
and hung them to dry
the next morning..
i put foam squares for height
and set aside
pulled out think embossing enamel and glue
cut black chipboard slightly bigger then the green check
spread it around
sprinkled on the embossing powder
set aside and did 7 more
then put banner shapes together
now for the fabric
i choose the same damask as my curtains
and some charcoal wool
thought it looked great together!
cut into strips
i choose not to sew together.. but wanted the fibers and strings hanging out for added texture
and tied a knot
and tied to next banner shape
yay! that's done
now onto the letters
there are 3 layers
i used my new storybook cartridge
i decided to paint the edges of the green accents just like i did the banner shape itself
then pasted them together
added a little stickels
and ribbon ~ then pasted it all together
and there you have it..
to complete i added "scrapbooker"
pretty happy with its turning out!
