Participating in the Christmas Banner Hop felt so rewarding, we decided to do a Valentine's Day Banner using "Love Bugs" as our theme. Adorable, right? If you've come over from: http://lindasimpsoncraftypieceofheaven.blogspot.com/ you're in the right place. If not, and you want to start from the beginning head on over to: http://cardmonkey-business.blogspot.com/ to join in ALL the fun!
Here are the main supplies I used. Ka-Zoo 12 x12 paper pad by K & Company. Create a Critter and DoodleCharms cartridges (most images were cut at 3.5", but 1-2 were cut at 3.75")
Here is the front of the banner in whole. Hard to see, but I wanted you to see how "fun" the colors were, not just lovey-dovey.
Here's a close up of the back side, the Critter/bug side.
Here are the rest of the critters/bugs.
I finally used my Gypsy to create this sentiment! I used Turquoise Stickles to really make the letters pop against the busy paper. I also used black pen and added faux stitching around the letters/words.
Around the darker background papers, I added white faux stitching. (Yes, I did accidentally adhere the "W" on the lion paper upside down. Arg!)
The Turquoise Stickles really helps the letters pop out on each piece.
Here are the last 3 letters. The banner spells out, "Have a sweet day".
