Sweet Pea Stampers - Monday 23/8/10


Well it seems a while since I last entered a Sweet Pea Stampers Challenge but I've been away and I've made two items and missed the deadline - what am I like?  This time, although I had the project planned I've only just finished it today as I only recently got the door hangers in the post.

The topic this week at Sweet pea Stampers is "lace and pearls" - oh what a lovely combination.  Sweet Pea Stampers also have some blog candy up for grabs for the month of August so you can have a look at that as well but you'll have to be quick!!!  I have coloured my image with Promarkers/Copics and highlighted areas with Stickles glitter glue and Sakura Stardust clear pen.  I have cut the image out with a Nestabilities die and then coloured the sky with chalk pencils and edged the image with a Promarker.  I have then added some gorgeous lace to one edge.  Next I turned my hand to the door hanger.  I coloured the door hanger with Tim Holtz's Fired Brick and Spiced Marmalade distress ink pads.  I then used various U-mount flourish stamps with Tim Holtz's Aged Mahogany distress ink pad to add some detail around the hanger.  I then cut three different flower shapes out of a book with my Cricut, scrunched them up, them inked with Fired Brick and Spiced Marmalade ink pads and the centre is a cord brad.  The door hanger is then finished off with some gorgeous Papercellar bronze pearls - wouldn't mind a necklace in these - and a calendar tab which I bought.

I thought someone could either hang this calendar on a door handle or put a hook up on a noticeboard for it to hang on.  Just something different for the craft stall on Monday.  Just the deliberation now on what price to put on it as I don't want to over-price it.

This door hanger I have made will also fit into the following challenges:
