I'm participating in another welcome banner swap. If you follow my blog, you may remember that we have now done banners for fall, Christmas and Valentine's Day. My assignment was one of the E's in the word welcome, and when I receive the banners from the other participants, I'll have a complete set spelling out W-E-L-C-O-M-E. This time we decided to do a house shape, and I think this is my favorite. For the background fabric, I started with a wheat-colored denim, stamped on it with different script stamps and pressed the Wild Honey Distress inkpad directly on the fabric in a few spots. The bird is the Carolina Wren that I painted recently, although not the original. I scanned it and printed it onto inkjet fabric. It's a great feeling to get extra mileage from my artwork. I have two of these done now — five more to go!
