Hi folks
Here's my first project since going 'International' and joining Tuesday Alchemy's Design team 'across the pond' and I have to say I'm so excited to be one of their DT members.

This week's Challenge at Tuesday Alchemy is Random words. They are  Bath, Duct tape and Sparrow.
Use one, two or all three words. If you use all three, put "A3W" after your name to receive an extra entry.
 (If it is hard to see what word was used to inspire you, please make sure to leave the word in your post.)
So get on over there and join in , you could be winning yourself $10 worth of vouchers to spend
from their sponsor's Stitchy Bear Digital Stamps or 6 free digis from Scrappers Delights


If you would like to recreate my bathroom door hanger ,Its really easy to do and all the instructions are below. So why not give it a try if you don't fancy doing it but would like to check out all the other inspirational projects on the Tuesday Alchemy blog, why not pop over now and see all the other great items made by their design team , Everyones Welcome xx

you will need the following recipe ingredients
Gold and Purple Card
Crafters Companion S.W.A.L.K ,'Time Out' Stamp
Spellbinders Fancy ovals die set
Spellbinders banners die set
Gold dotted Acetate
'Ranger' clear Glaze
Cuttlebug embossing folder -bubbles
Gold peel off letters and corner stickers
Gold paper candie buttons
large ribbon bow
Spectrem Noirs/ Any good Alcohol pens to colour

Start your project by cutting a large rectangle with a hole at the top of it out of gold card and then a slightly smaller one out of the purple.

stamp and colour your 'bathtub' image I used Alcohol pens but you can use any medium you would like. Glaze your bubbles with the Ranger glaze and leave to dry overnight for the best results
Run your Acetate through your die cutting / Embossing machine  inside a 'bubbles' cuttlebug folder and mount onto the purple card. Add peel off corners at this stage. Cut yourself a gold fancy oval die and mount your coloured image onto the centre of the die. Mount this onto your door hanger shape

Cut out 2 banner dies and stick on your hanger below your coloured image Add some gold letters to one of the cut out banners dies and spell out the word 'OCCUPIED' so when your door hanger is outside the bathroom hanging on the door knob, the kids know NOT TO COME IN!!
Decorate the 'hole' with some a gold peel off border and some gold Paper Candie buttons and add your bow and there you have it . A pretty and useful item that may buy you, all, at least 10 minutes peace and quiet in the tub!!
