Wooden Fairy Hanger

I've got a different little project to share today. I bought this rustic looking wooden hanger from my local book store.  I wasn't sure what I was going to create when I bought it, but I knew that I'd love to stamp on it.  I was worried about how the ink would take to the wood, because although the front is rubbed smooth, it is slightly "fluffy".  A light dot from my copics created quite a spread of ink, so a light touch was necessary!!

I printed the sentiment onto paper, and then traced the words like I used to when I was young, by rubbing a pencil over the back of the printout to create a type of 'carbon paper' and then writing over the words on the front to make a pencil mark onto the wood underneath.  Then I wrote over the feint words with Sakura Stardust Gel pen, and then used my white gel pen to create a bit of 'snow' on the lettering.

I added a few flowers (ok quite a few flowers!), some pearl strands, liquid pearls and quite a bit of glitter!

Hope you like it.  It does look better if you click on the picture to enlarge it (and even better in real life!)
