Altered Alpha - S







I only managed to find an S alpha and have yet to get a big C for Clarissa. Initially - the alpha was supposed to be mischievious and fun. It turned out classic after I played with it with UTEE. I think I am going nuts!!!
I dabbed embossing ink on some parts of the alpha, added gold UTEE and applied the heat gun. Loved the effect so much that I did it all over the chipboard letters and shape. Added a couple of gold charms with the words:
1) Spirit
2) Faith
3) Hope
Added a gold dragon coin later as Sean is born in the year of the dragon. Lastly - the gold filigree thingies...
Materials used:
MM "S" Alpha, PP, Thickers alphas, Gold UTEE, gold dragon coin, gold filligree, gold charms and Maya Road chipboard.
