Letterpress Love

Only one word applies, LOVE.
I am sure we will see many projects in the near future using these little babies.  Today, a simple little idea using Distress Paint and a Mirrored Star.
First, spell a word that you means something to you.
Use the dabber applicator to paint each letter.
I chose to paint each letter a different color - forest moss, picked raspberry, antique linen and peacock feathers.
Once dry, I sanded each letter then inked with Gathered Twigs.
Color a Mirrored Star with Espresso Alcohol ink.
Add the mirrored star to Memo Pin with Glossy Accents.
Use a hot glue gun to glue the letterpress together, adding the Memo Pin between the top two letters.
Cute right? And super easy.
If you didn't add the star to the Memo Pin, you could add a photo or a note to the top.
now carry on,
