More Pennants

I've been busy making the pennants for the ATT swap.  They all have the same design elements as the first one I did (see my last post), but to keep it interesting, I've changed the words, colors and embellishments.
First, the blue:
I'm really liking the drunken scotch technique with bright colors.  Check out the dragonfly:
Red:

Yellow/Light Brown:
Since the word on this one is journey, my embellishement is a layer of an arrow (inked chipboard), a grungeboard suitcase (drunken scotch), and a grungeboard jet (walnut stain distress embossing powder).  I even added a tiny luggage tag to the suitcase.
Next up, orange:
The gears were actually die cuts I received in the mail from a friend.  So, now I know the drunken scotch technique works well on cardstock.
So, that's five completed.  I'm in the middle of my purple pennant, so only 4 to go after that.
But right now....it's the early afternoon, the temperature is a mild 65, the sun is shining, and I'm going out for a walk.

hello Eileen,

all your pennants look great, but the blue's my favorite ( wonder why...:)

you're right to keep it interesting for you by changing the colorscheme of the pennants.

Just like Nancy I'm still not sure if I would sign up or not and just because of time, cause when I see yours there is no doubt I want one of you and I must participate !

greetings from Belgium
Inge
