Today at the Besties UK blog we are having a new challenge . The theme for this is ...... 'FOR MUM' ….. - your entry to the challenge must contain a Bestie Image
My project for this theme is a door hanger to showcase the beautiful bestie (IMG156). Always looking for something new to do in class to keep the ladies interested and busy I came up with this lovely door hanger for them to make... this one I shall give to my Mum to hang on her Art room door whilst she is in there painting. I like to give her my hand made projects she loves to have them in her home to remind her of me ....

Distress Inks - Seedless preserves, Shaded Lilac
To make this project I covered both sides of the door hanger with paper, I edged all the hanger with seedless preserves, then added gilding wax around the edges of the paper.
I cut the purple card 8cm x 13.5cm rounded the corners with a punch and affixed it to the hanger with glue gel. From the paper I cut enchanted labels 28 using the reverse side of the paper I glued this to the purple card.
Next I cut the flower dies, for the honey blossom sprig I used white card and coloured it with copics to match the paper, I sprayed with with spray and shine to make it glossy and a bit more robust. I cut the Dahlia die from pearlised paper and coloured it with distress inks, assembled it and sprayed it with spray and shine.
I then affixed the flowers to the door hanger with glue gel and left them to dry. I tied jute through the button and added to the bottom corner, the bow is a triple bow tied on the bow maker then a flower button was tied over the top. I affixed it to the door hanger with glue gel and put the scalloped circle beneath it, I added the message on the scalloped circle to finish.
The image is cut outside the oval another of my favourite techniques, I coloured it with copics and affixed to the project with glue gel.
I used the following colours:-
Skin tones - e000, e00, e11, e04, e93, e95
Eyes - fv2, v17
Hair - e15, e17, e18
Clothing - v0000, v000, v01, v12, v15, v17
