ALTER IT for Elisabeth Bell World Challenge blog...

Hello everyone!!!

Today we have a new monthy challenge at
Elisabeth Bell World Challenge blog
this month the challenge is..
anything you would like to alter with a love theme in mind.

Now this one is an easy one as I know you are all working on fun little Valentines gifts and cards.

Please dig out one of your Elisabeth Bell images and join us in the fun...

I have found a wooden frame a the local craft store and put pretty papers from 7 Gypsy, Graphic 45, Creative Imaginations.

I have used a very cute little image called MATTHEW WITH PRESENT found at the Whiff of Joy by Elisabeth Bell. He is the cutest little angel!!! I have colored him with copic markers and watercolor pencils. I have used beautiful trim, bakers twine, feathers, , ribbon, flowers, Tim Holtz key and locket, some little brass rings and brass photo corners and a brass butterfly. The LOVE U letters I have painted with black paint and added white dots and stripes.

Everything on my project has been inked very heavy and sanded back off. All of the edges are heavy with ink and sanding. To give it an OLD WORN OUT rustic look.

It really is very pretty in real life but in the photos it is not so great. I just hate it when that happens!!!!!

I have used the sketch from Sketch Saturday

All Sorts Challenge: boy/male

Totally Gorjuss: hot hot hot colors
Paper Cutz: Challenge #75, It's your choice

Just a few photos of close ups so that you can see some of the details.

Make sure that you stop by the challenge blog to check out all of the beautiful works of art done by the DT/GDT!! You will be insipired to join us in the fun!!!
I would love to see what you can come up with!!!!!
Have a wonderful day and THANK YOU SO MUCH for stopping by today with your very nice comments.
