Altered Letter

Good morning everyone.  My favorite type of challenge is an "Anything Goes" challenge because it lets me pair a current project with a challenge.  That is exactly what I did when I made this fun project.  I had signed up for a swap and it fit perfectly with today's 3 Girl JAM "Anything Goes with Ribbon" challenge.


My swap partner likes red, bling, diva, and steampunk.  Finding a way to meld these things together was a challenge all by itself.  I hope I was able to pull it off.


I started with a large black letter from Hobby Lobby (13" or so) and adhered lace from my stash with Mod-podge.  Despite the fact that the letter looks upside down, it is the correct direction based on the pre-cut hole on the back of the letter.


Other supplies:
3 Girl JAM ribbon - Tuxedo Black, Sterling, Dress White
Scor-Tape and cardstock scraps for the base of the flowers
Hot glue
3 different types of black trim from Walmart and Joann's
Recollections and Creative Charms bling
Tim Holtz mini gears
Folk Art - Cardinal Red acrylic paint

The video walks you through the steps I took in the project.


I am linking this to the following challenge:
Thanks for stopping by today.  Remember to take some time to enjoy the little things.  Be sure to link up your anything goes with ribbon project below.

So pretty, Cheri! I love your altered letter. I don't think the B looks upside down but you've also balanced it nicely with the lace trim and flowers. Thanks so much for playing along with the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge!
