Fall Banner Challenge

Banners are trendy in paper crafts these days.  I've never made oneand I wanted to try for a challenge in the 3rd Canadian cricut circle online swarm, closed Nov 15.  This was for challenge #2: Create a Fall or Autumn banner.
CTMH cricut Art Philosophy cartridge, button 28 cut at 1.5"
White daisy cardstock
D1558 Washi Wonder CTMH stamp set
CTMH inks: Cranberry, Juniper, Honey, Sunset, chocolate
E1027 Framework alphabet stamp
water based blending pen
Harvest bakers twine

1.  Cut the banner, stamp it with washi wonders patterns.
2.  Stamp letters in chocolate ink.
3.  Squish each ink pads as needed, the lids become colour palate for the blending pen.  Use the same colour pattern stamped to colour in the letters.  I originally left it like the top picture, but it looks unfinished.  I went back & used the blending pen to outline each pennant and it looks a lot better to my eye. 
4.  Tip:  Put a dot of liquid glass adhesive on the tip of the bakers twine, give the string a hard twist, let dry.  It is much easier to thread through the banner, think of the plastic coating on the tip of shoelaces and it makes sense.  Just a dot of this glue this way dries really quick, YAY!

I hope to use this on a scrapbook layout later.  Thanks for looking!
