Wedding Bells


Morning,

Been mad busy round here lately, wanted to share some more Altered Art items with you. This was originally a plain chip board suitcase, I was inspired to make it into a Wedding Keepsake which is for sale in my Etsy Shop.


I covered the case with a selection of design papers and then edged them with gold ink and heat embossed gold powder on top. The "Mr & Mrs" are chipboard letters which have also been covered and embossed and then glued on top. I attched ribbon to the handles which have also been distressed and aged.


The case comes with a personalised tag, which the customer would provide the details for and this is tied onto the handle. I think a suitcase is apt becauses it symbolises their new journey in life together.


The inside of the case has also been decorated with contrasting papers and I have added a poem to the lid.



Anyway, Thank you for looking. I have really really enjoyed making this, hoping to do some more....watch this space.
