Banner Art

I am still doing the Tip in Monthly Swap in one of my groups. This month I had the lovely Tamara's banner to do. What fun. I have not done a lot of banners. I did a swap just last month but mine were lost in the large vacuum called the Postal Service not to be heard from again. So getting to do a larger banner and one for such a wonderful artist was challenging.

Tamara loves orange and pink, Zetti, and winged things. This of course made it very fun for me. I used several shades of orange paint, some yellow and pink oil pastels to do the backgrounds. The zetti girl is from Teesha Moore and the young princess is from Paper Whimsey. The castle is from an antique tea card. Add a little ribbon, some glitter and some jewels and we have a banner.
