Happileigh Scrappin' Challenge #8

Here it is Monday already (where does the time go?) and time for another challenge over at Happileigh Scrappin'.  Leigh has more wonderful images available and is also giving sneak peeks of coming attractions, so be sure to check those out at the challenge blog.  But don't run away yet!  Let me show you the photo inspiration for this week and my project to go with it.

I really like the vintage quaintness, or is that quaint vintageness?  Anyway, I wouldn't mind having one of these in my house.  Well, this inspired me to make a door hanger with Leigh's beautiful angel, which I had already colored, just waiting for the right project.  She reminds me of a lovely Dutch angel figurine I have so I colored her with Copics in mostly primary colors with accents in metallic gold gel pens.

I think the door to every room should have an angel to greet those who enter.  Hmm, I think I'll be making a few more door hangers!  The white background is just plain cardstock but I use the Martha Stewart all-around punches with birds and branches.  Then glue on a bunch of paper flowers with florest pearls in the centers.  The cardstock for the hanger is #80 for sturdiness and the circle was cut with a Nestie. 

Thanks for stopping by today!  I hope you have a great week!  Ok, now you can hop over to Happileigh Scrappin'.  You'll want to see all the wonderful projects by the DT AND more surprises from Leigh.

A fabulous doorhanger Barb, it has a lovely 'folk art' look to it.
Oh how I love that vintage picture, I so want my next house to be filled with shabby chic gorgeousness like this!
