altered CD challenge- christmas decorations



The Paper Girls blog held another competition recently. This time it was to alter a CD with the additional rule that you must add words from a magazine.

now I've never been much good at the altered CD malarkey so I decided to chop mine up and make it into 3 christmas decorations. I entered the main picture of all three in the competition. What you couldn't really see from this was that I had triple clear embossed the pieces and then stamped into the UTEE with snowflake stamps inked in white. so I have included another picture so I hope you can see this.

The collage images and snowflake stamps are by Inka and the words are taken from the John Lewis christmas catalogue.
As the theme at Mixed media monday is ornamental christmas I am entering it for that.
