Cas-ual Fridays blog has a challenge of creating with banners.
Ties are banners, right? Banners worn around the neck. These cute ties are from a stamp/die cut combo by Hero Arts purchased at Archiver's. I glued only the knot of the tie so they look like they are swinging free. The "dad" is from Loved Ones by SU. The dad banner is Spellbinders. I cut a duplicate banner in blue to create a shadow to emphasis the dad banner. These 2 banners are taped together and then popped up on dimensionals.
Colors on the ties are: Real Red from SU, Royal Blue from Color Box, and Peeled Paint (green) Distress Ink from Tim Holtz.

Ignore the brown, the card base is white. I have trouble photographing white--my craft room light is not optimal, so I used the scanner.
