Monday Montage #4

Howdy and WELCOME TO FALL (again!!)!!! Today has NOT been my day!!! My ever-so-genius son (m-WAH, Devan!!) has been rebuilding my computer ALL STINKIN' DAY ... long story ... but since the sun has gone most down (which makes for nasty-awful pictures), and I am typing-under-duress, I feel like I'm lucky to even HAVE a post done ... but, I digress ...

I've been wanting to make a fall banner for FOREVER!! So, I'm happy to report, I FINALLY did it!! (I originally posted this with pictures I took at night when the light is bad ... had to redo them because they look MUCH better in natural light!)



Here are a couple of "close-up" views ... I used a water brush and some alcohol with some reinkers to make the Silver Glimmer Paper look more FALL in color ...


... And here's a view from the side ...

Stamps: NONE
Paper: Early Espresso (behind burlap for stability), Silver Glimmer Paper, Champagne Glimmer Paper, Red Glimmer Paper
Ink: Tangerine Tango, Pumpkin Pie, Daffodil Delight (reinkers)
Accessories: Autumn Accents Bigz Die, Naturals Designer Button, Early Espresso Baker's Twine, Early Espresso. Stitched Grosgrain Ribbon

So pretty! I love the burlap banners! Whenever I try to use burlap like this, I just end up with a big ol' mess. But look what you've done with it -- you've created a gorgeous, sparkly banner. Love it!
