'Purple, red, burgundy and gold" - Another banner for the swap

The wonderful Cath recently ran a blog candy giveaway -  I was amazed to receive a parcel as a 'Consolation Prize' for not winning - as one of a number of people.

I have been spending the past couple of days making more banners  for the swap I am in.
I had some of these lovely little blank discs amongst the stash so I stamped one and used it for this banner

The purple fabric with gold patterns, came from an India skirt - one of those large crinkle ones of years gone by.  I bought it from a charity shop to use. 
All the material is sewn onto a material base banner.

I used a vintage image which I overlaid with burgundy netting.

I had trouble photograping things lately - it's me not the camera
I used some more of the Indian scarf - its lovely rich colours with lots of gold don't show up here.

It looks even stranger in the bright sunshine - you'll just have to take my word for it, that it looks fine and subtle and rich in 'the hand'

Miss Lottie I am thoroughly enjoying your creative streak. This is lovely and you certainly rose to the challenge of the color combinations. Happy creating...
