Today I have a hanger that I made in response to this weeks challenge on the sunday stamper. Its blue and brown - I wanted to use these boards I had so decided to make a hanger. The boards are from the Sheena Douglass paint fusion range and I also used three sheena stamps - the top bird is from the little bit magical collection, the middle one is an older one and the background stamping is done using the feathers set. I also used the crackle and the burlap stamps from the ageing beautifully stamp set from Sheena Douglass.
I started by covering each panel with some TH paper from his 8x8 menagerie collection of papers. These papers were all leftover bits where i had been using the other side. Next I did some overstamping with the feather stamps using distress inks. I also used the burlap and crackle stamps on the backgrounds.
Next I focussed on the birds - I chose stamps from my collection that would work together and wound fit a 7x7 cm piece of card. I coloured the images using spectrum noirs and then distressed around the edges before overstamping with the crackle stamp.
This final stamp is from a collection by paperartsy - I was going to use Sheenas puffin but he looked a bit lost!!! The panels are all held together with jute ribbon from the Ribbon girl - love this!
