Harvest Banner

Most people don't think of purple as a harvest color, but it adds an unexpected pop of color to the otherwise neutral colors of Cocoa, Bamboo and Colonial White.  This harvest banner was created using the following ingredients:  My Creations Mini Banner, Sonoma paper, Sonoma My Stickease (only $1 right now!), Cocoa ink, Smokey Plum ink, Pearl Paint, Bamboo Re-Inker, Cocoa cardstock, twine, buttons and ribbon.  I also used the Cricut Artiste cartridge, a sanding block, spray bottle, and sponge daubers.  The cost of this super-cute banner - less than $10!  I used scrap paper and the tools, embellishments and inks from my stash.  While this project goes together quickly, it was a 2-day process.  On day 1 I sprayed the banner pieces with a combination of Pearl Paint and Bamboo Re-Inker.  I also cut the leaves and letters, then sanded and inked all pieces.   Day 2 consisted mainly of assembling the banner.
