The banner you have when you don’t have a banner stamp. Hmmm, right?
The embossed banner was done totally with masking. However, I know it’s kinda hard to see here. That’s because I chose the wrong stamp to use for this technique. I really needed something that would be more defined. I used the chicken wire background, but think the Vintage Checkerboard pattern would have been better.
But I’m still pretty happy with it.
I used French Country Backgrounds from Inspired by Stamping for the banner. Then used something similar to the Ombre Technique for the embossing. It turned out much better this time.
I then added a vintage style Washi Tape, a small banner for the greeting (which is also from Inspired by Stamping – this one from Ahoy, Matey), then added an image from Summer Postcards Add On – again, from Inspired by Stamping. The image was propped up on dimensional foam pads.
This card is a little too bare for my style, but that was the assignment. (After adding the white hand-drawn banner, I was much happier! Totally forgot to do that originally.)
