This past week over at Waltzing Mouse they had a SOAP event …(Stamp of approval parade :) They were showcasing last months release as well as older sets. I only just discovered WM a few weeks ago and i simply ‘adore’ the stamps that i have purchased so far.At the moment i only have 4 sets :( Which are bitty banners, vintage banners, one of the label sets and offbeat backgrounds.(Ya just GOTTA try that plaid stamp from the offbeat background set, it is soooo fab. Being able to create your own colour combo plaid backgrounds..Love it! *Need the fat plaid now…lol* Sadly i don’t have any of the image or sentiment sets …yet so that’s why i haven’t been able to use any on this project. Anyhows….to cut a long story short…lol After the ‘soap’ event WM they are doing a ‘Case Competition’ You have to pick out a card/project from the event and basically ‘Case it’ Gotta say that for me right now it just had to be Banners…soooo love these stamps. So i chose to case Claire Brennan’s banner creation from day 1, which was this
I LOVED the idea of using several pennants to create one larger pennant *I never even thought of that before…thanks Claire :) * So that’s what i was gonna do and then i saw the current challenge over at CR84FN which is this colour combo
I loved the look of this combo, however it isn’t one that i would ever use. I tend to put green with pink and blue with brown. Anyhow’s i got ‘to work’ and here is what i came up with.
I gotta say that after creating this i know LOVE this colour combo . I guess you don’t just have to create with pink for it to look pretty…lol I really love how this turned out. I used the large vintage banners stamp so this is quite a large pennant. Roughly A4 in size. I cut the pennants out using some wavy scissors that i have had for years and don’t think i’ve ever used them…lol *I knew they would come in handy one day :) * hehe! I have quite a few banner projects ‘on the go’ right now including 2 more of these, one the same size and the other way larger, it is roughly A3 in size and has a row of 5 pennants across the top row.
Iam soooooo tempted to create lots more like this size all in different colours/themes etc and then join them all together as one ‘huge’ banner to display around the walls in me craft room, how pretty would that look :) Hmmmm maybe i’ll lay off the cards for a while and do these instead…hehe I really did love creating this too :) SO thanks Waltzing mouse and CR84FN
