Alterations - H style!

I've been playing today!! As there is only a day left before I have to go back to work after what has been a lovely long break for Christmas/New Year I wanted to make the most of it.


I bought a cardboard "H" earlier this year  which I covered with a mixture of papers, paints and embossed metal.
 Though I have had trouble taking photos!!
Also used some terra paste and inka gold paint and some bling on a grungepaper flower from my stash.

And some idea-ology bits.
 and of course, tissue tape!






























These are the pine trees embossed on poison ivy metal, but they don't show up too well in the photo.
