Today I’m sharing with you a very special project. I live in the north of Spain, in a city called San Sebastián (Donostia in Basque) and today we’re celebrating the day of our city. Every year on January 20 the city holds a drum festival called “Tamborrada”. People dressed as soldiers and chefs play drums for 24 hours. You can read more about it here and also I encourage you to watch this video to learn about it because I think it’s a very special celebration.
I used My Favorite Things “Strike up the Band” stamp set. I’ve always wanted to use these bunnies for this kind of project but never been sure about how to use them since I needed also chefs. I decided to mirror stamp them once. Then, to make the chefs, I partially masked the hats and the baton and made a hat using a cloud stamp and also stamped a spoon for the leader of the chefs. Everything is colored using Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers. I even added some parsley to one of the chefs!
The banner is made with Lawn Fawn “Stitched Party Banners” dies. I made two kinds of patterns, one using the drum and the drumstick from the same MFT stamp set, and the other one using the cutlery from Lawn Fawn “Just for you” stamp set.
I added a circle die-cut from blue cardstock and used foam tape to glue the bunnies. On the central banner, I added the SS for the name of the city, die-cut using Neat and Tangled “Journaling Alphas” dies.
I love how this banner turned out! I think the stamp alteration went quite well! Now I can decorate my home for the festivity 🙂
I hope you like this project. Thanks for stopping by! Have a nice day!!
