Boys Will Be Boys

Crafty Muse challenge for the next fortnight is Boy Will Be Boys. Here's my DT entries:

Door hanger

I took the hard route to get this hanger made, but here's an easy way:
The base is a pre-cut MDF hanger that I painted in red acrylic paints.
In a Word document, I re-sized the page to the area I had to work with.
I inserted the comp boy image from Crafty Muse and re-sized it to fit.
Using WordArt, I designed the wording and re-sized it to fit.
I printed them all out onto paper. That was the easy bit.
Now, this is what I should have done afterwards:
Place a piece of tracing paper over your hanger and your paper on top.
Draw over the printed images and remove the papers.
Go over the outlines with a thin permanent pen.
The explosion image on the right is a stamp that I had to ink over with the permanent pen as it didn't ink properly.
I opened the skier image in Paint.Net (a free programme available here) and coloured it adding the wording.
After printing it onto photo paper, I mounted it onto hammered silver card.
I covered an A5 card in snowflake paper and added the image using foam pads.
I used DST to stick the 2 ribbons on the bottom and added silver snowflakes with stickles on for some bling.
Thanks for looking
Love and hugs
