We started out the same that is Roberta cut out the pennants from cream cardstock. We took the largest one and did a Tim Holtz technique with Ranger pearl white paint dabber. Basically you ink stamp with pearl paint dabber (or white acrylic paint) and print onto the edge of large pennant, allow it to dry. For mine I used blending tool with Distress ink pads in mustard seeds, faded jeans and dusty concord. For my second pennant I again (i do like blending tool with distress inks) used blending tool with same Distress inks. Stamped saying image live out loud from Stampers Anonymous with black ink and script with concord ink. For rectangle layer did same background coloring and stamped different images (companies unknown) with black ink and faded jeans. Stamped Mona with jester hat on another piece of cardstock with same coloring in background. Glued bell and gems on hat. Punched out wings from a McGill (I think) paper punch and mounted with foam dots. Taped two pennants and rectangle layers together, mounted Mona with foam dots......oooooops first before any taping or mounting get out trusty ole Krylon gold leafing pen and edge all layers. Add some highlights with white gel pen, spritz with Ranger perfect pearls mist for shine which you can see IRL but not so much in scan. Punch a couple of holes in top of pennant, knot some ribbons for a hanger and you are done! ***I think because of spraying the pp mist mine started to curl so I cut out a piece of cardboard and glued it to my pennant and viola!!! it is as good as new!
Give this pennant idea a try with your own little touches and come back and leave me a comment so I can visit you.
