Fairy Pennant Banner featuring Chipboard by Southern Ridge Trading Company

Hello friends, I have been super busy in my studio, and I will be sharing lots of projects coming up in the next few weeks. Today, I have created a fun and shabby pennant banner for a dear friend of mine. It is all about pink and fairies!
I am featuring some chipboard today from Southern Ridge Trading Company located here in Canada.
 
 
I started this pennant out by cutting a piece of chipboard at 8 x 5 inches, and covered it with some pretty Kaisercraft paper.  Once it was covered in paper, I layered on some lovely laces from Lavish Laces on Etsy. 

 
Once I was happy with the laces and trims, I got out some chipboard from Sothern Ridge Trading Company. I used the Flourish hair fairy which I just love she is so gorgeous!  I also used the word Imagine from the Word Mix 1 set.  I put gesso all over the chipboard and then gave them a light coat of some Prima Art Alchemy paint in Rose Gold colour. After the paint was dry, I used some Frantage Shabby Pink embossing powder on both pieces and finally, edged them with a Prima pink chalk edger go give them dimension.

 
For the fairy, I wanted her to be more dimensional, so I used one of the butterfly from the Butterfly Mix and cut off one of the wings and propped it up on the fairy with some glue. Behind the wing, I added some soft white feathers and that finished her off nicely.
 
 
 
 
I added a glad bobble to the fairies hand, which I coloured with pink alcohol ink. I also placed a white rosette beside her with some pearls and ribbon roses in the middle.
 
 
 
I added some gorgeous Prima flowers to the top and also some of the lovely IOD moulds from Prima which I gave a similar paint treatment as the chipboard, to keep everything similar. 
 
 
At the base of the pennant I added some butterfly appliques from my stash, which I sprayed with a dusty rose colour of spray. I then added some feathers behind them and topped it off with another pretty Prima flower.
 


 

 

 
 I hope you like my project today, and please check out Southern Ridge Trading Company! They are a Canadian chipboard company, and that is great for us crafty Canucks!
