getting better....

I'm still on my banner D.I.Y kick - round two is looking better! It helps to have color ink, the right paper, and an additional stamp to give the letters a kick!

Next up: Christmas banner!
I'm also going to try tea staining the edge of the paper... we'll see how that turns out.

Hope you're having a great Sunday evening! xoxo

Amazing.... I'm beyond impressed.
Fun little thing to try with your Xmas banner... sandpapering. You get dark paper (maybe a deep forest green??) and then sand it, and it scrapes through the top layer of color and creates a vintage, worn looking effect on the paper...
The things I picked up from my scrapbooking days...

Looking good! I should look into trying this as they are cute decorations that don't take up much space to store.
