Sweet Pea Stampers - 19 August 2011

Another fortnight has come along and it is time for another challenge for Team A.  The topic for this fortnight is "fly me away" so we want to see some wings.
I decided to make a door hanger calendar to go on my stall on bank Holiday Monday.  My Sweet pea Stamps image I have used is called Forest Blue and is designed by Ching Chou Kuik and she was one of my first Sweet Pea Stamps and still a favourite.

I coloured the wooden hanger with Tim Holtz Spiced Marmalade and Mustard Seed distress ink.  I then tied on various different ribbons/fibres to the top of the hanger.  The image I coloured in with Promarkers and then die-cut and distressed the edges with Spiced Marmalade.  The image has been mounted on top of two large flowers.  The hanger is finished off with some gems, chipboard shapes coloured in with Promarkers, Marianne Designs die-cut, calendar tab and some flowers that I brushed on Spiced Marmalade Distress Stickles (and I also painted some on the fairies' wings).

I am entering this project into the following challenges:
