I'm sharing an "Autumn Banner" tutorial on the Off The Rails Scrapbooking Blog today.
1) cut paper into banner shapes
2) apply several colors of distress ink to a craft sheet
3) lightly mist the craft sheet with water
4) swipe the banner pieces (right side down) through the inks to create swatches of colored areas
6) let dry completely or dry with a heat gun
7) apply die cut letters
8) punch holes in banner pieces
