Oddella hanger

I have just finished making this Oddella film strip hanger for my craft Room. I am loving these Oddella's with there little touch of quirkyness
For my hanger I cut the film strip out on my portrait , it's quite long at almost 11 inches but this was purpose as I did'nt want to make the images too small
I used 
coloured with polychromos and dusted round with Mowed Lawn Distress Ink

coloured with polychromas and dusted round with Pickled Rasberry Distress Ink
I then used my white Graph'It shake it and dotted around ontop of the distress inks.

Made 2 holes and attached some bakes twine to hang 

Flower Power

It's Flower Power this week over at

Oh such a fabulous collection Twiggy and Toots CD also as a download here 
I have used one of the lovely pre coloured owls I love this one with her little bag just on out for a stroll.

 All the papers and elements used are from the collection I just added in some pearls to the flower centers. I adore making these types of cards so much to see.

The cloud background paper is one that will definatly be getting a lot of use.
