D for Dotee

This is the other thing that I made at the Paper Art shop last week.
I made it for Dot who is one of the most generous people I know.
Recently she arranged a swap for Dotee dolls and Dotee ATC's and this was my way of saying thank you to her.
Dot notified me today that she had received it so I can show you now.
It is made from a cut out cardboard letter and torn up strips of co-ordinated paper were glued down onto the letter with Modge Podge.
When the entire letter was covered and dry I then roughed up the edges with an emery board and then applied Distress inks to give them an aged look.
The flowers were cut out with a punch --the edges were distressed also and held together with a brad and then adhered to the letter.
Ribbons and gold thread were added to embellish it.
Thank you Dot and I'm glad that you like it.

A lovely capital "D". How kind of you to give Dotee a gift.

And it is even more beautiful in person Doreen! I feel so touched that you would make this for me.
And say such nice things about me too.

Am going to find a special spot for it this weekend.

You are very thoughtful and generous.

I love the colors in this D. Blues and browns really look good together.
