Wizard of Oz- Altered letters

Hi all. I was recently browsing the Range where I came upon these free standing cardboard letters, as some of you may know Im a huge fan of the 1939 film 'the Wizard of OZ', thats when an idea struck me! I could decorate the letters 'O' and 'Z' with some pictures from said film. Here is what I came up with.
I gave the letters two coats of white paint before decoupaging pictures over the letters using some Decopatch glue that I purchased yonks ago.
Heres a couple of close up shots
I'm really pleased with how these turned out! Below is a picture of the letters in action.
Thanks for looking! Im going to enter this into  Craft my lifes challenge

Craft Haul

Hello! It's such a long time since I posted anything (hopefully someone is still there). I just haven't had the motivation to make any cards recently. However I went shopping today and bought some nice items and I'm desperate to play so hopefully I'll have a card to show you soon! I thought you might like to see what I've bought so without further to do here are my items:

The big stamp sets were £7.99 each or 2 for £10!! What a bargain!

a sheet of 12x12 dog word paper, I thought this was really different and at only 35p I bought two sheets!

This stamp set only set me back £2

However the biggest bargain of the day came in the form of these Woodware stamps which were £3.99 each or 8 sets for £10 making them £1.25 each!!!! There wasn't 8 designs that I could say I truly liked so me and a friend went halves!

 I hope you liked looking at what I bought and I hope to see you all very soon!!!

This card I made to play with my new stamp, isn't she lovely???? She's called Daisy and is from the Gorjuss range.

The papers are the same as i used in my previous post, I'm trying to use up stash before buying anymore!
I decoupaged part of the image to add depth and she has been coloured in using promarkers.
Hope you like x

A special Mum

This is a commissioned card for one of my colleagues. She wanted something cute and this little Ellie popped into my mind straight away, she is by Wild Rose studio.

I used papers from a range by Papermania called Tulip.
I decoupaged parts of the image to add some depth.

The inside reads Happy Birthday. All the fonts were computer generated and it is called Atlast.
Hope you like x

I made these cards as a commission. The lady wanted a few general occasion cards so these are what I came up with so far.

I've lost the packaging for the stamps but I do know the trees are by Kanban and the butterflies (I think) are by Cart-us???
Hope you like! x
