Altered Wood Letters

Hey my scrappy peeps! So I altered some wood letters I bought at Joann's for my mom for Christmas. Here is how they turned out.
I painted each letter with black acrylic paint and covered each letter with paper from DCWV Black Currant Paper Stack. Once covered both the front and back of the letters with ModgePodge.  I used several flowers from WOC,puffy daises, small maple leaves and skeleton leaves from IAR, a beaded spray from Michael's and I also used a couple Lindy's Stamp Gang sprays. I painted the gold roses with metallic gold acrylic paint, I would have done it with a Lindy's stain but I didn't have a gold color that I wanted to use. Please look below all the pics for links to these products.
