Embellished EMILY!



Okay, I took this picture in my craft room, the old way before the light-box. Now these pictures are not so great! Whatever (: On to this post (: I made these altered letters for my DD bedroom. You may remember I posted pictures of her room several months ago. She has a lime green focus wall and purple walls. Very 9 year old (: I made her name using plain wooden letters. I painted them with "folk Art 654 Metallic Amethyst," and distressed the edges with, "Adirondack Pearl Acrylic Paint." The paper is Glitz Design's GiGi paper collection. I also used Liquid pearls on the centers of the flowers along with tiny pearls. I painted the silk flowers with a little purple paint to give it more depth and shine. I used Lime frosting and Flower frosting from Glitz also. The end result is really neat, sorry my pictures are not, LOL! 
P.S.
I added new House Mouse Stamps
and embellishments to my online 
store today! Check it out!
