Wall hanger gift


I am continuing with my inking and this is a project that I have just finished.
I used a piece of  6"x 6" MDF. I painted it with White acrylic paint and dried it with a heat gun. I repeated the process using  a little pale Yellow paint. When this was dry I sanded it off slightly to show a little of the White paint from underneath.I stamped some images from  the Artsy Floral set by creative impressions at random until I was happy with it. I then inked the edges (which did not come out as nicely as I would have liked) and left it to dry. I die cut the Tim Holtz birdcage and fixed some Pearls, a Bird (cut on cricut) and some parts of corners cut from a nestability die. I fixed it to my card with foam pads to give a bit of dimention. I glued a die cut key, a trio of flowers and leaves and some more pieces I cut from corners that I die cut on my wizard.  I added some metal centres to my flowers and a double heart charm. The butterfly was silver metal but the colour was changed by adding different inks until the colour looked like a petrol slick in water. It gave it a lovely sparkly shine. I used some thin cord to make the bow for the top of the cage and I put I few loops in with the flowers to give a bit more interest.
I made the hanger from some pink  tape and knotted two small pieces of the thin cord about 1/2" from the top of the board. I was pleased with the finished article although I could have done better with the inking. I have only done a couple of projects with inking so I still have a lot to learn. I had more on my hands than on the board. the best thing about it was that I enjoyed it and will certainly continue to try and improve my inking skills.
