Michelle Perkett Studio Door Hanger Challenge
To celebrate Michelle Perkett reaching 300 members on her site at Paper Craft Planet, Lynne has organised a door hanger challenge. To play along, or view all the lovely creations, you can visit Lynne's site here. (There are also details on Lynne's site for a door hanger tutorial.)
This is my creation using Lynne's template. I have created a pattern to cut on my Robo, layering several layers of white cardstock. I also made an inner mat, which I have cut in a wedding print paper.
I have used Michelle's glorious digital image "Amore Fairy". With Michelle's permission I have printed her without her wings. She makes a stunning bride!
Here is a close up of Amore:-
Amore has been laser printed on watercolour paper & coloured with stamp pad inks & an aquapainter. I have added glitter to her hair & the roses. Sorry but I can never get that to show in my photographs! :(
Her lips have been clear embossed & she is lifted up on dimensionals. I have gathered a fine tulle veil behind her floral headpiece. I also cut out a reverse stencil of her dress, masking her up, so that I could spray her dress with pearl glimmer mist. Now it looks like shimmery organza (honest, it does). I even gave her a pearl earring. :)
Congratulations to Michelle for reaching this milestone & for her beautiful images. Thank you also to Lynne for organising such a fun challenge & for supplying the template & tutorial as well. :)
I made the hanger for the bridal/deb shop where we purchased my daughter's deb dress. They were soooo helpful (good old fashioned service). I am going to send it with a thank you card & a photo after her ball next week.
