The pic below is a side-product, sort of. I use to create the single elements for my banners this way. Usually I would trash them as soon as the finished banner is approved by its receiver. This one though turned out so nice that I gave it to Lambcullen too, as an additional treat. :)
Once again, this bannermaking was due to a bartering with the lovely Maylin.
