Artz de Scrap Happy Easter Banner

I've had these wonderful Grungeboard alphas which I haven't even used once! When the time came for us to come up with a banner, I just had to use the alphas. I used both the original and the textured stripe. To color it, I rubbed 3 different colored Colorbox stamp pads in Peacock, Peony and Moss Green, then stamped Inque Boutique See-D's Savoir Faire majestic Flight scroll with StazOn Black.

I cut egg-shapes out of tracing paper, rubbed Glimmer Mist Merlot at the sides using a cottonball. This gave the paper eggs more definition, making them look more 3-D. I also stamped the same scroll using Ancient Page Plum Wine stamp ink this time. to give the paper eggs some character. I also sprinkled clear glitter on it to give it some sparkle. After adhering the alphas, I punched 2 sides of each egg paper and attached mm Sky eyelets. To connect each egg, I used miscellaneous cloth flowers in purple and blue found in Kamuning. Each flower is attached to a wire which made it perfect as a decorative accent and as a connector to each paper egg. Pebbles ribbons in purple and light blue complete the look
