Altered CDs


This cd has been altered by heat embossing with Chinese Red powder, red & gold eyelets around the outside with red & gold wire holding the black lattice panel in the centre. Part of the lattice pattern has been filled in with gold glitter glue to highlight it.(Took hours to dry!) Black and white embellishments complete the cd which was then mounted on gold rose patterned paper, then black & white card, the whole then mounted on thick, rough handmade card. I rolled the edges and highlighted with gold rub on wax then added ribbon and brads to finish. Phew!! Hope you like it..............................


The gold cd has been heat embossed with gold embossing powder, repeated 3 times to give thick coverage. The sun image (Hampton Arts) stamped in black brilliance ink into the hot embossing. The swirls have been scraped out and flooded with 3D silver paint & a couple of eyelets and wire for the hanger.
