Color Combos Galore 180

Hello my friends!

I hope you are all feeling great this morning and ready for a challenge!

This weeks color combo at Colour Combos Galore is gorgeous. The colours are lovely red and blue candy colours.

Here is what I have come up with this week. 

I was a late starter again and I am normally quite slow when it comes to my favourite pasttime.
I had to make an effort to speed-distress if there was ever such a word. I used mostly products from October Afternoon (Seaside collection).
The blue paper is from local manufacturer Panduro Hobby.

The design challenge this week is to use banners.
I really wanted one made out of calico to go with my theme. But it was out of the question because of the time-element. I went upstairs, found an old t-shirt of Beatrices an attacked it with my best scissors.

I made the 'rope' part first and coloured it with a stamp pad. I cut the flags and layered them, then sewed them to the 'rope'. I outlined the triangles to make them stand out a bit more.

I attatched my papers with sewing, too.
Then I printed out and attached strips with my journaling.
