Banners

Tag Tuesday challenge this week is to use banners , I got engrossed in making my tag and forgot I was supposed to be using them . I know we are past the season for seaside but these are some new stamps I got at the show last week and I couldn't wait to use them. Stamped and masked the bathing belle and then the background. I love the beach huts , whenever we see any at the coast I have to photograph them, its all the different colours I think that draw me to them. The stamps are from Crafty Individuals.background coloured with Distress inks, details with water colour pencils.

  8. Love this tag, it does look vintage. The banner looks like it came out of a 19th century circus.

  10. I just love the cute way you added your banner to your card, and did all your own colorizing too. Any more it seems that is my papercrafts are more about putting together already made items then crafting the items first. Take Care~ Sherry
