Blogger's Challenge 88 - Alter It

Our challenge this week for the Blogger's Challenge is called Alter It. The challenge is to take something and change it, like a home decor item, a candle, a vase, etc.



This item is a little plaque that I found at a local thrift store. It was all of 25 cents. It was completely blank. I started by painting the front with blue acrylic paint, and the sides with peach acrylic paint. I stamped Tilda on Horseback on white cardstock and colored with Copics. I then cut the image out. The meadow scene is from a border that I have had around for quite a while. I believe it is made by My Mind's Eye. I attached these to the plaque using Modge Podge. My Modge Podge had started to dry out, so I just added a little water and it worked great. I then added a couple more layers of Modge Podge over the top. I plan to give this to my DD for her BDay.

Have a wonderful weekend!
