Vinyl Wall Hanging

Hello everyone,
Sherri here from Sherri's Crafty Place, feeling a lot older today......today I celebrate my 40th Birthday, boy is that hard to say, it will definitely take some getting use too....LOL
well today I have project using my Gypsy, vinyl and a little paint...oh and of coarse some stickles, I feel every project could use some bling....
I made a wall hanging, I think I will be hanging this to welcome people to our Travel Trailer
 here is how I made it....
I picked this piece of woood up at the dollar store.... 
then I painted it blue....... 

 I (heart)vinyl...........
I designed it on my Gypsy, then laid the vinyl out on my mat, be sure to change your Cricut setting to Kiss cut the vinyl...I put my speed at 2 my pressure at 2 and my blade depth at 4.... 
 this is called weeding, I left everything I was going to use on the sheet and removed all the vinyl I was not using....the Cartridge I used for the letters is Lyrical Letters, and I welded my letters together...... 
 here is the light house using the Life is a Beach Cartridge....
 I added the layers to the Light house before I placed it on my painted wood...
( LOVE my tweezer bees...a must have....)
 now instead of using transfer tape, which could be a little expensive, I use mesh drywall tape, it is kinda sticky in one side and you can get it at the dollar store( or BORROW some from the hubbies garage...hehehehehehe)and I used this one piece to place all my images....
 now just using my finger I burnished the light house onto the wood, and slowly lift the tape up, then continue burnishing the light house to the wood....
 ( I love how it is looking!!!!!)
 you need to be a little more careful with the letters, just take it slow....  
 and now I added a little bling to the sand, I Love stickles....
 and here is the finished wall hanging....and I am going to use a clear coat of spray sealer to finish it off....
I just LOVE how it turned out......I hope you do to....
well Thank you Sheila for letting me come and play here for the day.....
I so enjoy my days at She's A Sassy Lady.....
