Tag Tuesday, Banners


When I read the theme Louise gave us for the Tag Tuesday Challenge at Kard Krazy, I had no idea what I was going to do. I knew that banners where a design, but I for one have never so much as thought about adding one to a project. In the end I went with the only banner that I relate to... a Sale Banner.

I would be going with a vintage look so the first thing that I did was find me was a pretty border to go across the bottom embellished with the metallic brown pearls..


The more I got into creating this tag, the more fun I had. I used scrapbook paper, from the Tim Holtz Lost & Found Collection, for the background. There are a few images that I wanted to make stand out, so I added Crackle Accents by Ranger. Then after adding a few ephemera inspired designs, like the stamps and product advertisements, I added some more Crackle Accents! Went a little crazy with the stuff. Somebody stop me!! 


Here's a closeup of the banner and me going crazy at the top with the crackle. I made the banner with some Jolees birthday party hats. I turned the hats upside down and covered them with Nostalgic Tissue Tape, and then outlined them with Distressed Stickles in the color Fired Brick. Both of these products are put out by Ranger. I added the letters by hand stamping them directly on the banner to spell the word sale. Did you notice that I added a little crackle to the letters? I can't stop using the stuff!


Above is a closeup of the mulberry flower that I added and with the vellum clock with game spinner by Tim Holtz. I layered 4 different flowers from Boutique Fleur, and attached them using a vintage inspired brad from Making Memories. I did add some stickles to my flower and then changed my mind. You can see how well that went... lol!


Like I said, there is a lot going on, but it was a lot of fun. Thanks Louise for hosting Tag Tuesday at Kard Krazy. I think I will be making a few more banners now.

A big thanks goes out to all of you. Everyone's comments and friendship has been such an inspiration for me.

Until Next Time... Take Care!

  12. Sherry, your banner tag is so gorgeous. I love all the extras you did to make it a work of art even if it is a tiny work. It makes me want to see it in person. Banners around here are generally rectangular. What Louise (and the rest of the entrants) call banners is what we call pennants. I guess that's why mine didn't fit the mold too well.
