FLAGS AND FREEDOM

The entryway is all decked out for the Fourth of July with flags and a banner I was inspired to make from something I saw on Pinterest.  It was originally posted on ETSY.  Here is the link.




The flags in the glass vases were the ones I posted about HERE where I showed how I aged them.



Below is a close up of how I did the boards for the banner.  I first painted 3.5x4.5 pieces of wood I got at Michael's  with Folk Art #879 Linen.  I then stamped the background lettering on with a rubber stamp I had on hand with black ink.  I then blotted a brown ink pad over the whole thing to age it.  I also inked the edges with black ink then added the red vinyl lettering.

Let Freedom Ring!

Hey there, I love that freedom banner, especially the background.
I'm surprised to read that you did that with a rubber stamp and the ink pads. You do such nice work.

Your entry way looks great for Flag Day this month, plus the Fourth of July next month. I like having patriotic decor for June and July. Take care.
