~* Altered Wooden 'D' (CCCB #24 ~ Flowers & Frills and TSTR #29 ~ Pearls & Pastels) *~



Hiya Sweet Peeps!

Here's a Shabby Chic Altered Wooden "D" I made. I'm playing in these two challenges:

~ City Crafter Challenge Blog - CCCB Week 24 ~ Flowers and Frills: Use at least one flower and either some Lace or Doily.

~ The Shabby Tea Room - Week #29 - 'Pearls and Pastels': Pastel colors and/or be-jeweled theme of this photo inpiration by Clare (isn't it a gorgeous bracelet!!).

I used paints, distress inks, crackle paint, multi-medium...and a bunch of flowers (some flowers I distressed with inks), charms, pearls & buttons (from my friend Rina), and lace.

Hope you like it and hope you have a Happy Friday and weekend!
*hugs* and Much aloha~!

What an adorable altered letter, Steph! I really love all the feminine touches. Gorgeous flowers and pearls. I really like the mix of the metal charms in here, too. So fabulous. And great for decorating your home! Would look wonderful with some wire birdcages or dress-forms like you're talking about getting.
