I'm a mother to Lee and Nicola and grandmother to Mia and Aidan. I love my crafting and do a bit of everything there is. I also design and sell digital downloads for card making. I love photography and playing around in Photoshop too.
Over at THE CRAFTY PAD we're running a competition this week and for a change from cards, we've asked you to alter a CD. There's some great prizes up for grabs for the winner too. Crafty Pad Designs are giving away a brand new set of digi fairies with sentiments, Jasmine's Cards are giving a CD chock full of floral images and papers and Letraset are giving a pack of Promarkers. Why don't you pop over and have a go. They're great fun to do.
I started off by using alcohol inks on the CD in shades of brown. Then I split a paper napkin into single layers, tore off a few pieces and crumple stuck them down in a couple of places with Diamond Glaze. When dry, I inked them with my distress inks. I got a sheet of newspaper and inked some of it with browns, again using my distress ink pads and then stamped a flower (Hero Arts) 3 times onto it. I cut out the different sizes and layered them up. My buttons were originally white so I used an alcohol ink to colour them, then used some Basic Grey rub-ons and finished them off with crackle glaze. The ribbon, lace and other stuff were from my stash.
