I stamped using Peacock Feathers Distress Ink and blended the colour out with a wet paintbrush.
I added a small bow made using a piece of black tulle, some pearl string, and topped with a satin ribbon rose.
The stamp also comes with a small stamp of a kite, so you can have the young boy flying the kite. However, I decided to use the kite to make the bunting, by folding the top of the kite over a piece of pearl string.
The backing papers all come from the Couture Creations Paper Pad called Sew Jo. It has a lot of beautiful sewing designs but just as many other designs which can be used for any occasion.
I matted the papers on to some dark brown card and added metal corner embellishments.
The dies I used with this project are from the Californian Collection of the Dies by Sue Wilson.
