Replacement Door Hanger.

It is a new challenge over on The Butterfly blog.

I decided that my craft room door hanger could do with a face lift so I raided my stash for some bits and bobs and came up with this result.

The rose design backing paper is from Simply Homemade magazine from their Signature Collection which came as a freebie a few years ago now.  The filigree butterfly die I bought a long time ago from EBay but it came second hand and unpackaged so I don't know the make. Lace, ribbon, cork heart and the key all came from The Works and in my stash. The Crafter At Play sign was cut down from the original plaque sign below using SU 's Extra Large Modern Labels punch.

Appendage.
I took a punt on the butterfly being a Cheery Lynn Designs due to the colour of the die and sure enough  after looking on their site it is. From a 9 piece die set B266 (though it was being sold on EBay on its own. Can only think that the previous owner didn't like butterflies as the rest of the set is made up of insects). I do like a mystery solved!



Here is the back of the hanger showing the rest of the cut down wording that I punched out using SU's  Decorative label punch. The circle of butterflies around the hole uses a punch by Tonic Studios.



I hope you will come and join in the fun . The challenge runs for 2 weeks.

  11. Some gorgeous creations here Mrs A, and so sorry to hear that you have lost the plot and need to have hangers on the doors to tell you which room you need to go in.
    Also it wasn't me who put the butterfly on e-bay because I would have put the insects on as well.
