Quick Quotes Altered Fleur de lis

Hi!  Alicia here today with an altered letter and fleur de lis wall hanging.  I made this project for my sister~in~law's birthday.  She loves fleur de lis.  I started by painting the chipboard piece black.  Then I designed the letter and vines in Cricut Design Space.  I cut the flowers with a manual die cut.  I cut many flowers and pieced them together inking every layer with Quick Quotes Powder Puff Chalking inks.

I added dimension by intertwining the vine with the letter and flowers.  

I popped some pieces on pop dots for more dimensional variation.

I distressed the flowers by crunching and folding to give them dimension.  I also used different papers to make them pop!
