Door Hanger For Lauren

Firstly I want to say thanks a million for all your lovely comments on my posts whilst I have been away on holiday.  All this week will be spent hopping around to your blogs seeing what I have missed and also to leave you some hugs and love.

 Fashionable Stamping Challenges this fortnight have a terrific theme of  “Child’s Play” which was picked by our wonderful DT sister Esther.

This is my first time of making a door hanger and it will be hanging on my craft room door until my granddaughter Lauren comes over, if she likes it it’s hers.  Amber is very arty and uses lots of paints with her work but Lauren, who is eleven, loves anything to do with needlework.

Used a few stamped images but the main is from Flonzcrafts called “Girls Sewing” which you can find here.  Used my watercolour pencils from Faber Castelle for the colouring in of the image.  The other stamps are from Stamping Up called Established Elegance.

My crafty friend has a fabulous paper pad from Prima and I used a page for the background with various inks and stencils.

I would love it if you hopped on over to see all the DT’s work as they are simply stunning.  Also don’t forget that the winner of this challenge has $20 to choose anything they like from Flonz’s store.

    Hi Shirley – now that is one seriously beautiful tag! Sounds like you had a fab time too!
    I don’t know if you are aware of it but I can’t find the post or link for Challenge #23 over at Vintage Stamping Challenge – I am guessing that Blogger is being a naughty little so and so and I wanted to let you know Karen x

    Pretty Pretty PRETTY! Love your door hanger, Shirl. Now, I want to learn how you did the “hover mouse over thumbnails” to change so incredibly on your blog post! WOW! That means I’m as impressed with the presentation LOL as I am with the pretty colors and masking in the background of the image! (it does not take much to entertain me, does it?) hugs, de
