DT post for Jiggery Makery - Festive Bunting

Hi everyone! Here's my post for Jiggery Makery using the Missy digi image designed by Adele Bradwell. Such a great image to work with & until the 14th November this digi is available over on Jiggery Makery Etsy shop for only £1 ! All proceeds are going to Children In Need so pop over, pay a pound get a great image & help children - no brainer!
I wanted to make some festive bunting, I knew there was a template in Craft Artist so opened it up to have a look.
I had already printed & coloured my image - mmm too big for the size of the bunting - what to do?? I took a photo of my coloured image then imported it into CA to resize for the size of the bunting. Copied the image 3 times then printed & cut them out.
Back to CA to design the bunting, found some lovely green gingham type paper for the background, then added 2 'ribbons' across the middle. Found some embellishments (a bow & a button) - resized. Printed out the bunting, then the embellishments on another sheet of card.
Thought the bunting would look better with a red border so adhered the four pieces to some red card & cut out leaving a border.
Adhered Missy to the bunting, cut out & adhered the embellishments.
Then printed out a fancy label with the sentiment printed on it.
Punched holes in the corners of the bunting, threaded onto some red dotty ribbon, leaving a space to place the sentiment label.
Love this image it is so easy to work with whatever medium you decide to use it with.
Don't forget to pop over to Jiggery Makery blog & have a look around there is a link on there to the Etsy shop.
Thanks for stopping by.
