Create For A Cause

This month Gecko Galz are giving back. The D T are making items for their chosen charity so if you purchase products from your favourite design Gecko Galz are giving 10% of the money towards their chosen charity. Every couple of days one of the D T will have their design showcased so please visit Gecko Galz to take a look. Today it's my turn to be showcased.

My chosen charity is Great Ornond Street Hospital Childrens Charity.

I made a door hanger using images from the Gecko Galz Wonderland collage sheet.

Wonderland Door Hanger
Images from the Gecko Galz Wonderland Collage Set.
Wooden Door Hanger Blank.
Fresco Finish Paint in two colours – one light and one dark.
Fresco Finish Crackle Glaze.
Alice In Wonderland Book Pages.
Picked Raspberry, Walnut Stain and Mowed Lawn Distress Ink.
Versamark Ink Pad.
Clear Embossing Powder.
Stampendous Frantage Embossing Powders. The colours I used are Aged Rose, Shabby Pink, Aged Green and Shabby Green.
Sizzix/Alterations Bird Branch Die.
Paint the hanger with the gesso, let it dry.
Paint the hanger with the dark FF paint, when dry spread a thin layer of the crackle glaze over it and when this is dry paint it with the lighter FF paint, as it dries you will see the crackles appearing. Sponge the picked raspberry round the edge.
Tear the book pages and adhere to the hanger.
Die cut the bird branch with the mountboard and cut away the bird, colour with the walnut stain and mowed lawn distress ink, adhere to the hanger.
Emboss the Frantage powder round the edge of the hanger and anywhere else you’d like it to go.
Cut out the images and double emboss them with the clear embossing powder. Adhere them to the card.

Here are a couple of close ups.
