Today I would like to share with you a Door Hanger that I altered for a challenge over on Country View Crafts . This month the subject is 'Quotations & Sayings' hopefully I have complied to the rules.
It started off as a plain chipboard tag that I painted with brown acrylic paint, then added crackle paint in Antique Linen before spraying it with Cosmic Shimmer Mist in Rich Gold. Then came the fun part - the embellishing. Small ribbon pieces from my stash, key and lock are a Sizzix Alterations die - 'Hardware Findings' cut from Tim Holtz grunge board painted and shimmered in the same way as the tag itself. The larger flowers and leaves are from Prima, I believe, the small ones are Wild Orchid Craft flowers. A small length of trim in a bronze colour, again from my stash and two glass dewdrops in red. The 'DREAM' ticket is from a strip of Adage tickets from Tim Holtz Idea-ology range which I am trying to using sparingly because I love them too much. Finally, the sentiment is from a stamp set from Stampers Anonymous 'Stuff To Say' inked on to cream cardstock and heat embossed with red embossing powder.
I really enjoyed the process of making this tag and it's the first time I have made anything like this. It was a little out of my comfort zone to create grungy and tattered, I usually stick to cute or classic styles. But I think it turned out ok.
Would love to hear your comments on it.
Well, bye for now
