What would have been..................

...............my next DT project for Digital Ink Co which has sadly had to close!  I had this project ready made for the next challenge so am going to post it anyway.  The theme was to be Anything Goes so I made a door hanger for a baby's bedroom. 
The image I have used is from Stampen with CJ and I just thought it looked so cute and peaceful that it would be perfect for a door hanger on a baby's room.  I didn't have any ready made door hangers so I made my own from two pieces of heavy cardstock which I covered in shocking pink card.  I added a frill around the image which is coloured using a mixture of pencils, promarkers, sakura gelly glaze pens and Marvy markers and then pearlescent chalk on the background.
I then adhered it all to the hanger with silicone glue.  I added a couple of butterflies at the top to compliment the one in the image and some self adhesive pearl gems in decreasing sizes around the cut out.  I am quite pleased with it considering I had to make it from scratch.

I shall enter this into the challenges at:
I Love Digi which this week is Think Pink.
Bizzy Becs Creatalicious Challenges - Create a little something
C.R.A.F.T. Challenge - ribbons and sparkle (the pearlescent chalks give a sparkle all of their own I think!)

Dare U 2 Digi Stamp - Pearls
One Stop Craft Challenge - Optimistically Pink
