Artz de Scrap Altered Doorhanger

I just finished the Artz de Scrap Altered Doorhanger. Using the wooden one given to us, I decided to crackle the whole surface, then stamp black script all over it. Then I did something I've never done before, I layered rub-ons one-after the other over the stamped script! This created an "edgier" background. I must admit, I was second-guessing myself by doing this. In the end, even with the "layered" look, the style still became mine, still vintage.

I cut the frame part of the Little Yellow Bicycle Vita Bella Collection Blue Circle Frame with Metallic Foil pp, adhered it to the door hanger so that it just fits around the hole in the middle. Then I added some cloth flowers and leaves.

Love the cut-work you did on your pattern Candy. I like the effect of the crackle paint on this. By the way, thanks for sharing that tip on adding water sa crackle paint. Great work!
