From Me To You

These two items I made for a swap I'm involved in, each month we have to make something "altered" and mail it to the next person on the list. Well this month I had to make and send to Nicky - Nicky does some really beautiful altered pieces so I was a bit worried about what to make.
This first item is an old CD which I altered. I cut the cd shape out of some lilac paper which was out a kit I got ages ago from QVC. I stamped the little girl onto the paper and then added distress embossing powder and heated it. I then added the letters onto the top of the cd - these again are from a QVC kit. I then stuck this paper onto the front of the cd.

For the back of the cd I used my alcohol inks to cover it and then when it was totally dry, I used some Squiggly Inc stamps from Paper Artsy and randomly stamped the swirl pattern. I took a piece of glossy card stock and my cranberry and wild plum alcohol inks and inked up the glossy cardstock. I then stamped another little girl using stazon ink onto the alcohol inked background, I rounded the corners and then simply added a little flower using a brad to fix it in place . Both of the little girl stamps are from Paperbag Studio's and are from the Dreamer set.

This is my very first altered cd and I am quite pleased with the end result and can see me doing lots more of these.
