I have been wanting to do a Back to School banner but I Really didn't want to use the traditional primary colors because they would have stuck out like a sore thumb with my muted pallet of my house so as I was trolling the world wide web today and looking at the different challenges out there, I came across Hand Stamped Sentiments and the awesome idea of having a inspiration challenge. You could be inspired by the colors which I totally am and I added in more to complement it and you could be inspired by the back to school theme as well which I am too.
So you know me, I of course got to work at creating. I am home alone with no kids and no hubby and after my trip to Hobby Lobby and my slight redecorating of the backpack area (see it reveled on Monday), I got to work.
I used some of the new DSP from SU called Etcetera. The colors in there were just perfect so I went to work. Yes I made rosettes which are a pain so that was why only three were created. I had at first thought of doing ABC/123 but I liked the triangles with just the rosettes. I die cut out from the apothecary framelits and than using a old letter stamp set did the ABC. I added in some silver bling.
I really like how it turned out and I am off to working on a new wreath for the front door which will also be back to school themed but with more of a punch of color.
