our header was made in PSE9 by me (lauren!) using paper, brushes and elements from an utterly gorgeous kit called artplay palette: retro holiday, by one of my favorite digital designers, anna aspnes, purchased at o'scraps; the fonts are deftone stylus, bohemian typewriter and impact--all free from dafont.com; and the divine sparkliness of the lettering is thanks to flergs' over the rainbow glitter layer style from scrapbook graphics, which i learned how to use via this great tutorial!
here are our cards:
Lauren says, "i may have gone a little crazy with the inspirations this time! i used the color palette, obviously, and the fabulous (though slightly hidden) memory box jingle bell die that miss lorraine gave me for xmas (thank you!); and then i've also got the grungy vibe of the header working with some messy stenciled snowflakes and dots, plus i've got red glitter chipboard (of course, lol!) and i went a bit vintage and collagey with a lot of little fanciful layers, just the same way i did-- digitally-- making the header."
Stef says, "I took my inspiration from the color palette of the banner (although slightly deeper hues) and added some golden glittery Memory Box jingle bells (thanks Lorraine). Papers are Basic Grey Jovial with sentiment stickerz from EAD Designs Sweet Sweet Christmas and this week's CardPattern's Sketch."
and now it's time to see what ♥YOU♥ will do with "A BANNER HOLIDAY"! remember you can use *any* aspect of the header that inspires you: the colors, the retro style, the various elements, it's all fair game... so feel free to be as literal or as abstract as you like! link up here by 6pm (EST) on wednesday, february 8th. keyword for galleries or our flickr group is JB12-03.
