Hang about!

The current challenge at Out of a Hat Creations is 'Hang about'. I made my hanging (24x11cms) using cardboard. It was, as usual, partly peeled, painted, sprayed and then embossed with Utee gold. The tag itself has been cut from my old calendar, which gave me a lovely supply of shiny, black paper.  I stamped the background using my fave stamps and my new Fresco chalk ink from Gaby. Leonardo's lovely lady is a stamp from lost coast designs, and has been stamped with archival black onto the back of a biscuit packet. After fussy cutting, I distressed her with Victorian Velvet DI. I added some scraps of ancient book paper and dp, and a strip of lace. I used string to tie it all together, and added 2 black eyelets at the top to thread the ribbon through. I used some flowers, seam binding, a butterfly charm and some beads as embellishments.





We are still waiting for the spring here. Other places in Germany have already had sunshine, we just got grey skies - but the weather man have promised that tomorrow spring will be here - I wonder!
Have a great day you all, take care and thanks for coming by!
