Catered Crop Challenge--Banners & Bunting

The challenge this week at Catered Crop is to use a banner or bunting on your project.
One lucky player will win their choice of three digital stamps by Torico from her Etsy shop, Birdie Brown. I love Torico's whimsically cute images so I wanted to play along.

I colored up Purple Onion Designs' banner flags with Copics (BV13, RV55, Y21, YG03, and B02) and added some dots for texture. They were trimmed and adhered with dimensional tape.


The background digital paper is from The Queen of Quirk, and the sentiment is one of my favorites from Paper Smooches. I also added a bit of wonky stitching around the edge to match the banners.

I wanted to add something between each flag so they would look "connected" and I remembered the twine knots that my friend Emily shared in her video tutorial here. They were adhered with Glossy Accents and the card was done.

I'm going to blame the summer heat for turning me into such a lazy stamper. I seem to be using a minimal amount of stamps on a card and being happy with it.

Thanks so much for stopping by, and don't forget about my Paper Smooches giveaway here. Have a bannerific weekend!
