Challenges - Two for One`

So. whilst I was eating my dinner before getting back round the Workdesks, it came to me! (also helped by catching an interview with Julia Roberts -that's the real one, not Linda E!) - Banners, film stars, movies - red carpet. So:

Using the tag from my workdesk (victorian velvet, pumice stone, coloured using the smoosh with water on the craft mat technique) I added two bits of the banner (cut from a sheet of paper by Craftwork cards) that I had trimmed down already.

Stamped coloured and cut out the two Stampotique peeps and made a red carpet with a piece of red velvet that was just lying around (as it does!) Can't remember where I came by this, but it's quite a large piece and I'd forgotten all about it.  What a couple of movie stars they are!

Used my dymo labeller to write "the red carpet" - what a palarver that was too, when I got to the 'red' bit, I didn't press hard enough so the letters didn't come out - I had to take the roll out, re-thread it and hope I'd got back to the right place to re-write it!!   typically for today, I then also stuck it very slightly too low on the tag.....  it can only get better from here!

Stamped a couple of tickets (Tim Holtz) to finish.
So, Sunday Stampers - at the movies - and Tag Tuesday - banners.
