I found these really great wooden plaques at my local dollar store. There were the perfect 6 x 6 size and already had the holes pre~drilled for adding my beaded hanger.
The image I used is the artwork of a very talented and sweet friend, Shawne. She has a brand new line of her own stamps, Studio 313, with Clear Dollar Stamps. I was the lucky winner of her blog candy recently and really needed to get this little guy put down on paper! I popped the image for a 3~d look, textured the dp and hand stitched beads into the scallops of the circle. The beads on the hanger are strung on copper wire and secured using a wire~wrapping technique I use when making beaded jewelry. I've also covered the wooden plaque with mulberry paper.
Supplies: Clear Dollar Stamp set, Wood plaque, mulberry paper, My Minds Eye dp, Core~dinations dp, SU inks, Nestabilities scalloped round die~cut, Cuttlebug embossing folders, Martha Stewart fern punch, ribbon, beads, silk flowers, brads and machine stitching
