Seize The Birthday - Banners and/or Pennants


We've got a new challenge at Seize the Birthday today, Banners and/or Pennants.  My favourite way to make pennants is with Distress Inks and solid patterned images.  I used Winnie & Walter's Scenery: It's A Wonderful Pennant.  I inked up the stamps with Wild Honey, Tattered Rose and Worn Lipstck, spritzed with water and stamped onto the card.  I masked the larger stamps while I stamped the smaller ones. The two different sizes of pennant help to give an impression of depth of field.  The sentiment snuggled nicely into the gap on the right.

I added a few sequins, so I'm entering this into CAS on Sunday - use sequins.


So come over and join us at Seize The Birthday.


If you don't want to use banners or pennants, you can still play along with a birthday theme.


ETA: Also adding to CASology - Flutter (thanks for the prompt, Anita!)
