Vertical Banner - WRMK Punch Board

Hi ladies, this is Lekha!
Here is my another project using WRMK Banner Punch Board. Creating banners is always fun especially for birthdays, home decor etc..So I thought of creating a vertical banner which can be used as pin board, photo mat etc.

For all the three panels I have used chipboard to give it a strong base and used ribbon to connect each piece and hang it. I have used the liquid silicone glue from Itsy Bitsy and its must have adhesive..quick drying,very strong and odorless.
Here is a look at the complete banner. 
Sorry for the bad picture, was difficult to get it in the frame !

For the project I have used some lovely pattern papers from the Itsy Bitsy store..
 In my last post I had used this amazing tool for creating flag shaped shaker banner , lets explore a different shape, this time a Crest or pocket shaped banner.
I have used three different sizes for the three panels. I would not say it depicts any particular style but a mix of both shabby and rustic.

The first panel has a hand written quote (I tried a bit of lettering) and used laser cut chipboard wings from the latest collection added to the Itsy Bitsy store...loads of amazing designs..and I am sure you will love the entire range..You can use these laser cuts as it is or paint them, heat emboss them like I have done. I have used combination of two shades. Have also used a lace trim and pearls.

For the second panel I have used this very pretty pattern paper which has this old rustic feel to it. For this I have layered the pattern papers with a magnetic sheet between them. There is a center photo mat which also magnetic backing..
Not clear in the photo but have cut slits in corner to fix a photo.

The last panel is the biggest size you can make with the banner tool. And this my favorite panel.

It has the new flower collection launched at Itsy Bitsy..aren't these gorgeous.These flowers have a lovely sheen to them and would brighten up any project you use them for.
For the little lasercut chipboard piece I used a lace piece from my stash and heat embossed it in gold.    
Notice the little tags..they have a wooden peg to adhere them to the center of the panel which is magnetic.Lady's silhouette is fussy cut from the same pattern paper and I used the foam tape to give it a little dimension.
