{BOO} to you!

Hello my dear blogger friends, it´s been a while since my last post but I catched a huge bug this week and I´m way behind my posts. You´ll see them during the comming days ☺
I´m starting with this hanger I made to inspire you at the Outlawz Twisted Thursday challenge, this week we have a wonderful sketch for you and we are asking also to have a Halloween theme in your creation. Hope you can join us in the fun!
 This a recycled and decorated old CD, the first picture is the front of the hanger and the second one is the back of it. As you can see I used the cut out of the frame in the front to decorate the back (patterned paper from my stash), I couldn´t throw it away! so I had to use it.
I started by coloring the image, the cute witch is from Michelle Perkett, another beautiful image! I colored it with colored pencils and blended them with gamsol. Then I cut a pice of a children construction paper to cover the front and back of the CD, I love this one because is splattered with glitter! I cut the frame with my cricut machine and glued it to the center as best as I could, I stitched large glass seed beads on the inside of the frame and drawn faux stitches with white gel pen on its outside. I placed the image by adding dots of strong instant glue on some beads to hold it in place. The cute bat and the corn candy are halloween stickers that I placed first on scraps of paper and cut carefully around, the bat is placed with foam tape as is one of the corn candy. You can see its 3D effect here
then I spelled BOO with foam stickers that I also faux stitched with white gel pen. Bellow it I hand wrote the sentiment. On the back I keep it simple: I faux stitched the cut out as I did on the front and added a sentiment, used another sticker (the cute ghost) and placed it with foam tape. To finish the hanger I glued directly on the CD a stripe of tissue pink paper ruffling it a bit while I was placing it before gluing the decorated cardstock. A piece of fishing line finishes it and there you have it ready to be hung!
Thank you for stopping by!

Absolutely awesome project! I just love the bright pink and the ruffled tissue! So very cheery to hang on a door! (I don't like scaring the little ones.)

I love seeing cute images of witches, since overall the ones I've known tend to be nice people without green skin or warts on their noses! :)

Love the pink ruffle, too! Fantastic creation. Thanks for joining us at For Fun Challenges!
