Tag Tuesday - NOT ON PAPER

It's been a while since I got to play with Louise's (KardKrazy) Tag Tuesday challenge. This week's challenge is any tag NOT ON PAPER! That one had me stumped for a while.

Then I saw Hels Sheridan's blog about altered CD's. That made me remember a technique I saw a long time ago about using Alcohol Inks on CD's.

I will say that this was a CHALLENGE to get the AI to "dry" AND keep some definition of color. I finally had to hit with the heat gun between layers. I'm not sure you can see the real depth of color here, the CD has a natural rainbow effect and it shines thru the AI. I covered the back with plain paper. You can punch a hole in the CD with your Crop-o-dile (heat it a bit with the heat gun first).

The main image is recycled packaging (from the glass slide frame package). The Prima rose was distressed with Vintage Photo and then the tips of the petals were touched with Glossy Accents and glitter. And along the edge of the image I ruffled some tea-dyed ribbon a friend sent me (Thanks, Kelly)!!

Stamps: sentiment
Paper: scraps
Ink: Distress Ink
Accessories: CD, Prima flower, glitter, fern punch, "Scrabble" tiles, alcohol ink, ribbon.

  2. Deb, what a great idea! I think you've achieved great color on that CD.
    (BTW, I was looking through some old Stampington mags lately and some of your work. Can't remember now which mag it was, but your work was gorgeous!)

  3. OK, I really tried to figure out this challenge before I peeked, but I was completely clueless until I viewed your tag -- awesome 'spin' on the challenge! Leave it up to the vintage queen to take such a modern canvas and create the perfect ephemera feel!!

    BTW, I mean 'vintage queen' only in the most complimentary way :) !
