Moments to Treasure

Hello everyone!! I'm sharing a altered wooden plaques that I made quite recently. I've been meaning to alter this wooden plaque that I had bought almost a year back, but never got to it. So finally, I dived into it last week and I'm quite satisfied with the outcome.

Here it is.


I covered it with white acrylic paint using the Adriondack white paint dabber. Then I gave a few coats of blue acrylic paint (I really was not sure if the white coat was necesary. But since this is my first project, I was nervous about the outcome. I'm really not that good at painting. I sprayed water, applied blue paint and continued doing this until I was frustrated ;) ). I then used 2 small Studio G stamps and part of a stamp from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps' Decorative Frame Toppers Clear Stamp Set to create a beautiful background with silver ink pad. I used my heat tool to dry it.



Then I stamped the chandelier and the sentiment "Moments to Treasure" from Whimsy Stamps' A Touch of Elegant Furniture and embossed it with white embossing powder.


I punched out a butterfly using my MS punch and used hot glue to stick it. I bought this glue gun quite a while back and was really scared to use it. But finally I opened the package and I used tweezers to hold the butterfly while sticking it :) But after using it once, I really love it!!!


I punched out a few pine leaves using the MS punch and added a few white flowers from my stash. I used hot glue for this also.
