Bunting - the second flag

On to the second flag:

The base of the flag is plain black card. The trim has been made using a spellbinders die, love this die as you can trim it to give so many different looks. Finish the bottom of the flag with pieces of the die so you get a better finished effect.

We are still using the wonderful double sided wizard of oz papers. Now this time we cut one of the papers into the flag shape, and run it through the cuttlebug in an embossing folder, the one we used was a Tim holtz die. Before we embossed the paper we tapped one side of the die with a versamark pad, do this gently as you only want the ink on the top of the die, don't squish it in as you'll over ink your die. We then embossed the paper. Remove it from the die and cover the full paper with gold embossing powder, melt with the heat gun. This gives a fantastic effect, with the embossing powder dipping in.

One of the other papers has these fantastic stamp images on it. We cut a couple of stamps out and backed them onto black cardstock. These were attached to our beautiful embossed paper.

The top of the flag was finished with the scrap bits from our spellbinders die. We used a small piece of card for the bottom of the flag, and a piece of the lovely paper to trim the top and bottom.

The top of the flag was finished with enamel accents, these give a lovely glossy finish.

We used the ribbon we coloured for the first flag to attach it to the rest of the bunting.

Viola, two flags.

Ooooh - I'll be trying the embossing powder with an embossing folder idea soon! Thanks.
