Stampin' Up! Delicate Doilies and Newsprint Designer Series Paper decorate a 3D Letter

Ok, so I promised I'd be back with something different to show you, not just another card or scrapbook page.... and true to my word, here I am....
My mum gave me a Papier-mâché J for my birthday last year, for me to decorate, she knows me well :) But, it has been sitting on my shelf for almost a year looking at me, I couldn't decide what I wanted to do with it... So, the other day I painted it cream in preparation of doing "something" with it... Here is how it ended up
I laid the J down and drew around it on some Newsprint DSP (retired) and cut it out using a sharp pair of scissors. Once it was cut out, I stamped randomly the doilies from Delicate Doilies in Calypso Coral, Early Espresso, Pool Party and Island Indigo. I then covered the whole thing in a thin layer of Crystal Effects, using a paint brush to spread it. I set it aside to dry for around 3 hours. Once it was dry, I tied a piece of ribbon around the "stem" of the J. I am really happy with how this turned out, and it's taking pride of place on my display shelf :)
I am entering this in to the Wee Memories patterned paper challenge.
Thanks for dropping in :)
Happy Stamping!
