Sweet November Doorhanger-For the Girls

Morning all! Hope you're enjoying a lovely relaxing Saturday morning! I've been working on this wooden doorhanger for the past 2 evenings, and so enjoyed making it, it's so pretty and girly! I just adore Amy's Sweet November fairy's, this one is called 'Sparkle Thistleweed'-what a fab name! I do love my images to have some real character and these fairys have tons of it! I love working with them!

I bought some handcut wooden doorhangers a week or so ago especially to make some sparkly pretties:) I've coloured 'Sparkle' with my copics, used my clear copic atyou spica pen all over the hair to add sparkle, added shimmerz gold glimmer over the dress and applied a generous coat of Glossy Accents all over the image to provide a bit of sturdiness. Here's a close up:~

All the papers I used are from the new Crate Paper pack called 'Pink Plum' available from Quixotic Paperie here. After covering the hanger with the papers I applied some Distress Crackle Paint in picket fence to all the edges then went over them with worn lipstick distress ink. I used a few scraps to make the lollipop flower below and added some more Shimmerz to the edges then attached a glittery brad to secure. To accent the lollipop flower I also used the bazzill bling templates to add some bling-they're so easy to use!

I used some pale pink roses from my stash and glittered them up with some Stickles which you can see below. Isn't the lace just lush! I absolutely love it, in fact I'm getting quiet addicted to it-you can check out the range here, but I used fuschia and orange.

I'm adding this girly glittery doorhanger to my Etsy Shop to find a new home to sparkle in:)
Here's another yummy flower close-up:~

I'm going to enter this into the following challenges:

Charisma Cardz-something for the kids-this is perfect for little girls and grown up girls alike:)
Stamp Something-Distressed Something-I used distress inks and distress crackle paints and paper distressing on the lollipop flower.
My Time To Craft-Lovely Lace

Well I think that's about it for now! Enjoy your weekend and thanks so much for stopping by today and for any comments you leave-love hearing from you!
