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)!!
