And my name is .....

Hi, Herme here. Saw this typecase and I couldn't resist. Not knowing what to do with exactly it sat in my art room for a while. Then I saw these wooden letters on sale, they had all different colours but because I knew on forehand that I would paint them it didn't matter.

 
I sanded the letters slightly and painted alle of them except for the letter S with white gesso. The letter S is painted with black gesso.

 
Sand and painte with white gesso. Stamp on with Stazon Black. On the letter K I stamped the windmill scene 19124 and on the letter O the Sunflowers 19119. then I rubbed some gold and antique gold rubons on the edges.

 
Sanded and painted the letter S with black gesso and the letter T with white gesso. Stamped with M'xed Media Inx Jasmin the feather Silhoutte 19126 and on the T with Stazon Black winged girl under umbrella 19116. Again rubbing some gold and antique gold with rubons on the edges.

 
Finally I did the same with the letter E,  and stamped the Lighthouse scene 19125 on it. And used the sunflowers again for the letter R.  

Used stamps:
the Windmill scene 19124
Sunflowers 19119
feather silhoutte 19126
Winged girl under umbrella 19116
Lighthouse scene 19125
All the stamps can be found also on plate 923
