Make it Crafty Violet Hanger

Happy Friday...this is a scheduled post as we are away at a business conference in Queensland and then I'm going on to visit a friend in the north of the state while I'm here...coming home via Helen's for 2 nights...*waving* Helen, will be there soon :)

This week our challenge theme at The Outlaws Copic/Promarker group is HUMOUR, so let's see all those funny images or sayings you have tucked away in your stash. You can make anything you like...doesn't have to be a card. We're hoping to get lots of laughs this week from your entries!!

We also have a fabulous tutorial for you this week, done by our talented teamie Jo.  There's a video and PDF so come on over and have a look. We'd love to see anything you make with the instructions.

I've made a hanger....


I saw this saying a while back...somewhere??...and loved it. Perfect for a hanger lol so I just had to find an image to go with it. I've used Violet from Make it Crafty...isn't she gorgeous :)  I would have liked to make a project using Jo's tutorial but couldn't find those particular folders in Aus :(

I haven't made a hanger for a while and had forgotten how much I enjoy them. I'll probably have a bit of a run on them again now!  Violet has been printed onto Cryogen White (iridescent), coloured with Copics & glitter pens, fussy cut and popped up on foam dots...she is about 5 1/2" tall. This is what I love so much about digis, you can make them any size to suit your project. This is the first time I've tried the Cryogen paper. I bought some from the US to see what I thought of it...it sounded lovely with the iridescent finish...and my teamie, Carla, uses it all the time. I like it but it definitely handles differently to the X-Press It blending card, which is still my favourite :)  The Cryogen will be anice alternative for a change and sort of (but not quite lol) saves using the shimmer sprays I love so much :)

The wooden hanger is one that hubby made me. I still have a few left to use before I ask him for another lot. He helps support my addiction lol
