Tweet Banner

Today's project features Clear Scrap's Chipboard Banner, Stampendous Cherry Bird and Authentique pattern paper! 



Instructions:
1. Cover chipboard with Authentique pattern paper using Beacon's Fast Finish. 
2. Stamp Cherry Bird, color and cut out. Embellish with leaves with glitter.
3. Color Clear Scrap acrylic letters with markers. Paint back with white acrylic to make color pop. 
4. Adhere diecuts, stamped images and acrylic letters to banner.
5. String banner pieces together with twine. 


A tip for if you run out of letters: Look at your letters and see if you can create the necessary letter by either trimming off a piece or overlapping. I was short an "e" when creating this banner, but I noticed that if I flipped and overlapped two "f"s I could create an "e". The leaves of the stamped image cover the seam. 

Supplies Used:
Clear Scraps (Chipboard BannerAlphabet and Numbers)
Stampendous (Cherry Bird, glitter)

Authentique pattern paper (Harmony)
Beacon (Fast Finish, Zip Dry)
Die'sire Chantilly Lace Die
Spectrum Noir markers (LY1, LY3, IG5, IG8, BT1, BT2)
white acrylic paint
twine


Be sure to head on over to the Stampendous blog all week to check out what the rest of the Design Team has created with Authenique!
