Altered Spoon


Created for the ABBA challenge. This week's theme was Altered Cutlery. I found an old spoon and coloured it with AIs in Butterscotch & Raisin. I then added a collage image, and glued tiny gold beads around the bowl of the spoon. Next I coloured some silver cardstock with the same AIs and ran it through a cuttle bug mesh embossing folder. I punched small squares from it, attached jump rings and added beads. These were placed down the handle of the spoon. Finally, I added some epoxy stickers to spell Dream on each of the squares.
