RSS Challenge 9 - Xmas Banner

Hello All,
The latest Ready Steady Stamp challenge is slightly different. Over the next few weeks they want you you make a Christmas Banner. The current challenge is the first piece of the banner (like bunting) and here are the 'ingredients'.


You can choose your own colours but must keep to them throughout the weeks ahead. I used Christine Dark's Joie de Noel stamps which I bought yesterday at The Craft Barn. This set includes a star and swirly mistletoe which I used for this project. I also used a script stamp from Hero Arts. The large star and mistletoe were heat embossed and some glitter added to the mistletoe. Finally a few punched stars and a bell, et voila!




Unfortunately the photo is not one of my best as it's very grey today.

Thanks for looking. BFN.

  9. Hi Fiona! I love this idea for a challenge and your banner is superb. I love the stamps embossed with gold and the script stamp is a perfect background. Wish I could join in but the Stamp Something site has malware on it it seems and my browser won't let me go there! I can't wait to see what you do for the next one. Thanks for your lovely comment about my Dad. I'm off over there again a bit later and hopefully his angiogram has gone well. Speak soon. Chris xx
