RSS Banner-Final Piece

Hello there,
Greetings from snowy Sussex, we must have had about 4 inches of snow here and I must say it looks very pretty. My cat doesn't like it all tho', she hasn't been out for a wee all day!
I've now finished the Ready Steady Stamp Christmas Banner, the final piece was completed last night and here it is.
This one is fairly self explanatory. The picture of Father Christmas was one I printed from the computer, the torn backing paper is from my stash and the scrolled music sheets were torn out of a very old book of piano music. I also randomly stamped a music score on the red base card and embossed this with gold E.P. The final additions were the pearls and bell.

Above is a 5th piece that I decided to make a few weeks ago, (even tho' the challenge only required 4 pieces) I seem to have a bit of a mish-mash of styles going on in this banner which was not my intention when I started, but never mind hey? Here it is in its finished state.

I really enjoyed making this banner so 'Thanks' RSS for a great challenge.
Thank you for looking and for all your comments.

  3. Wow Fiona, it was worth the wait! What a fantastic project and it looks so lovely in it's entirety. Very inspiring, I'm really tempted to give this a go myself next year.

  4. Wow Fiona your finished banner looks stunning. I think 5 pieces look so much better than 4. Will you keep adding to it every year?
