Door knob Hanger
 Hello friends ! Hope you all are crafting well . Today I have a Door knob hanger to share with you all.I made this as a gift to a friend and now that she has received it I am sharing it on my blog :)

Door knob Hanger
I have used cardboard sheets from cloths packaging for the base ,stacked two pieces together to make it sturdy.Adhered pattern papers,layer of gesso and paint then attached a frilly lace On both the sides.

Made the alphabets using a stencil.Layered few more gessoed pps.The cute girl image is paper pieced from a pattern paper.Embellished it with lace,pearls, golden doily, handmade flowers ,tiny tags n banners.

Inspired by henna

Front View
As the title suggests ,design on this card is inspired by Indian Henna designs. Made this card for Challenge set by Indira as part of Mega celebration on her blog Arty Sorts, the challenge is to make a new year card and use Indian motif/ motifs on it.I went very traditional way :)

Cone painting
For the panel I combined cone painting and loose water coloring . I made a paste using ceramic powder,white glue and white acrylic paint and filled it in a plastic cone, just like henna cones and then drew the design on water color paper.

After it dried completely I did some loose coloring with yellow water color and Lindy's Stamp Gang  mist- Ramblin Rose bud  attached the water colored panel on shaped card base with foam Tape.

Drew the sentiment on vellum with same cone and after it dried attached it to the panel.Colors on the are inspired by current Runway Inspired Challenge - ric #74 Escada
