Nude words....inside and out!

Ooh doesn't that title sound a bit naughty {lol}
Today we are looking at decorating wooden letters and I want to extend a huge IACW welcome to the lovely SCRAPDOLLY who is sharing her stunning project with us today.
Karen has decorated the word TRAVEL beautifully using themed paper and embellishments.
And a little detail...
My project is a little different...
I have used the Creative Imaginations bare elements word CREATE and have decided to start off decorating the NEGATIVE or OUTSIDE part first. (the insides are still waiting for their turn!!}
Firstly I painted the whole thing blue, including the inside bits for the R and A.
Once dry I used a sanding block to give it a shabby worn out look.
A few bits of ribbon and a clear jewel were the only decoration I wanted.
For the backing I used Cosmo Cricket, Dutch Girl: Audrey paper attached with modge podge.
And a little detail...
A huge thanks to the lovely Scrapdolly for sharing her work with IACW readers
and as always...
