I used an Inspired Blueprints sketch because I was in the mood for creating another pretty banner!
I misted then used the Lily Bee rub-ons that I've had in my stash for so long - aren't they wonderful?!
I used the Pink Subway thickers from my Studio Calico kit, plus some gauze bandaging to soften the whole look & some resin butterflies from my stash.
Those gorgeous stickers, journaling stickers & word sentiments are all Crate Paper exclusive to Studio Calico.
I 'messy inked' using Pink Doodlebug ink & added some My Mind's Eye Fine & Dandy bling as a final touch.
The lace, ribbon & pearls that make up the banner are prima & the bows are from ribbon from my stash.
I know I'm late on the uptake but suddenly all manner of banners are seriously appealing to me!
Finally I'm feeling really confident with sketches, using them as a starting point for inspiration only & not feeling forced to follow the dimensions & proportions exactly, so that I can stay true to my style.
