Can you believe it's almost July? I decided to get out some patriotic decor yesterday and wanted to add to what little bit I have. Perfect excuse to play along with two challenges this week also!
The first challenge is a color challenge over at H2H. I chose dutch blue for the "any blue" and added in some white embossing and desert sand ink.
I'm also playing along with the challenge on the Ribbon Carousel Blog. What says "Happy Birthday" to America more than a festive banner!?!
I originally had 3 barn stars over my fireplace mantle. I replaced them with one great big one which was hiding in my bedroom and out of view anyhow.
Here is a close up on the pennants. You will see that I used a Spellbinders label die for each of them. I stamped a flourish from the You & Me stamp set in white first and embossed it. Then I stamped script background in desert sand ink and sponged the edges to make it appear more aged. The letters are from old textured card stock die cuts. I simply embellished with some barn stars with buttons, faux pearls and hemp twine.
