That 'Blooming' Hanger




Thought you might like to see a little mini-hanger that was done as a swap over on UK Stampers Forum.  This swap comprised of a free style 3 x 3 inch hanging to be swapped with a swap partner.

I did mine on a base of old brown cardboard cut to size on the trimmer.  I have recently bought the latest set of colours of the Dylusions paints from Art From The Heart and after applying a piece of thin white card to the base, used grey, sienna & turquoise paints applied with a brush until happy with the effect.  Once dry this provided a surface on which to work.







I punched out a border with an EK Success edger punch and stuck this in place at the base of the square. Then I stamped in archival black the central image with a Lost Coast stamp.  I used a round lid and inked the lid with broken china distress ink applying rings of ink as shown.  These were heat embossed with detail clear embossing powder.





I then used some rub-ons (Kaisercraft) of a flower and a leafy sprig to decorate further. The butterfly is a self adhesive salvage sticker from TH.  I then used an opaque Posca pen in turquoise to edge and colour some elements.  The edges of the hanger were coloured further with broken china distress ink applied with cut'n'dry foam.






The hanger itself was fashioned from a piece of florists wire threaded through two holes made with a pokey tool and a mini label was added with the word 'Bloom'.
