Lettering week - Sylvie

Sylvie has altered one of the Home Decor piece by Tando Creative: The Home Hanging kit
using PaperArtsy Fresco Finish paints and glaze, transfer foil and other techniques she describes below.
One of the ways to use chipboard letters on your projects.

Apply the Guacamole Fresco Finish with the grey side of the Cut n' Dry foam.
Add some "Hey Pesto" on the edges, and then touches of "Mermaid"
Paint the letters with Fresco Finish South Pacific, still with the grey side of the Cut n' Dry foam. 
Paint the sides of the letters with a brush

Paint the butterflies and flowers with Haystack and Smoked Paprika
Stamp the PaperArtsy script onto the butterfly using Stamp and Bond powder. Heat it and then apply gold Transfer Foil.
Edge the letters with Gold Encore ink
Heat emboss the letters with Versamark and clear UTEE

Using two circle punches, make 2 stencils with a Post-It note
Apply paint (Mermaid) on the Kaisercraft stamp and stamp through the circles stencil. Repeat with the orange paint.
Trace a circle with a permanent black pen
Use the punched circles as masks to cover what you have just done and stamps the PaperArtsy script on the chipboard using Spiced Marmalade Distress ink. 
Dry with a heat tool.

Apply the Fresco Finish Metallic glaze all over
Edge with Broken China Distress inks.
Add some little Tando Creative chipboard hearts painted with Fresco Finish paint and glaze.
Attach the 4 panels with a string
