Wedding Build a Banner

I am sad to say that  I have been pretty quiet on here for awhile. I have been very busy with my mother who has a serious illness, been hospitalised and is now in Aged Care. So stamping has taken a back seat for me over the past few weeks. I have made some Christmas cards which I really enjoyed. I'll share them in a later post.

However for this post I wanted to share with you the banner I created for my son Alex's wedding to his partner Sarah.




 The wedding was a wonderful celebration all about them and their love for each other. Sarah and Alex's theme was for a country rustic feel to the decor so the banner I created fitted in beautifully.


The ink colours I used were Soft Suede and Night of Navy. I added embellishments like rhinestones and paper roses. Below are some of the preparation photos I took while making the individual banner pennants.


A lot of masking needed to take place on each pennant but as I worked through the banner I found I was quicker at doing each one, so what I thought would take me a week ended up being only 3 days work. And that was not solid time at it I was on holidays after all! the Build a Banner kit includes all the pennants, stencils and one spritzer bottle. You add extra spritzers if required and your choice of reinkers. I also used the Hearts stencil from the Hearts and Stars Decorative Masks. It was a lot of fun to create plus knowing it was for a very special occasion made the effort all worth it!

And here are the happy couple!


Thanks for stopping by!
