Masterpiece in Progress

As threatened on Friday, there's no card from me today, but instead something a little different.

I bought this little wooden hanger a while ago and wanted to make a decorated sign with it.  I have coloured on wood with Copics before and found it quite hard, so this time I tried painting it with DI reinkers. I admit the ink on the bear did run a little and it was hard to blend, but I managed to keep it mainly inside the lines, and I love the way that the natural wood grain still shows through.

The little bear image was the perfect size for the hanger and I inked the sentiment in stardust gel pen.

The finished hanger has been sent to a treasured blogpal who creates the most beautifully painted masterpieces.

Card Recipe:
  • Image - Happy Bears from LOTV
  • Typed Sentiment
  • Colouring - Distress Ink Reinkers
  • Sakura Stardust Gel Pens
I've been inspired by:
  • Simon's Monday Challenge - Hint of Clover (green)
  • Papertake Weekly - Anything Goes
  • Simon's Wednesday Challenge - Special Lady (this hanger has been sent to a treasured blogpal who creates the most beautifully painted masterpieces)
  • That's Crafty - Doodles (hand written sentiment)
Happy crafting
