I've been wanting to try altering again for a while, so I've had a go at altering a CD - a great use for those freebies of NO greatest hits from who knows when from the Sunday papers!!
This is certainly a bit different to my usual style but I treated myself to the new Moulin Rouge paper pack this week and it is lovely - gorgeous rich colours and it really set me thinking - rare event lately!!
I painted the edge of the CD with black acrylic paint, added a scalloped cut piece of Moulin Rouge paper, stamped over it with music score stamp. Added gold embossed flourishes to the edges and a scalloped piece of dark pink organza material (not sure of the proper name??). The bodice is a clear peel off, backed with MR paper and coloured over with promarker to take some of the shine off the edging.Punched out the holes and tied up with ribbon. I'm sure I had an Eiffel Tower charm somewhere..but I couldn't find it! I improvised a little picture of the Eiffel tower instead. Embossed flat silver colored frame with gold embossing
powder and inked over with black, added tiny picture of Eiffel tower and sealed with thin layer of Glossy Accents. Here's a closer look:
Think I might have got the bug for altering things and getting inky - knew I shouldn't have bought Craft Stamper mag -LOL!!
Thanks for looking, would love to know what you think - good or bad???
