Happy Birthday Brenda

Hi everyone 

Anyone who follows my blog regularly will know that my favourite stash item is all my lush ribbon. Today is the birthday of the lovely lady who supplies all my lace, ribbon, pearls and buckles, Brenda. I knew I had to make something using lots of products from Brenda as a gift for her birthday. I decided on a door hanger that Brenda could hang on her lace & ribbon room.

Chipboard plaque - Every Crafts A Pound
Paper - Purple Texture - La Boutique Dei Colori printed on normal printer paper and decopaged onto the plaque using Acolor Allround Medium available from That Craft Place 

Everything else on the plaque is from Brenda's Lace & Ribbon Specials 




Pop back tomorrow and I will be blogging the card I made to go with this gift.

 I used the 2nd blue combo listed above to cover the lines leaving the ends white and dragging the colour out with the blender pen so they blended to a white tip. I then went over the whole wing with the clear Copi Spica glitter pen.
