A little Gift

Here we are,the 1st of March and a new challenge over at Altered Eclectics starts today....
As always it's Altered Art/Mixed Media...NO cards etc.
This is my design team piece this month..... Jewelery made from Cd fragments.


                                          Items used

After selecting some fragments from the broken CD, I sanded both sides and then added two coats of black gesso.

                       The backs, coloured and heat embossed.

I then sprayed each piece with the inks, drying each colour in turn.
I pushed each piece on to the ink pad and then covered with embossing powder and then melted the powder with a heat tool.
I did this 4 times for each piece, only because I did'nt have the thicker embossing powder.


While the 4th layer of embossing was still hot,I pressed the rubber stamp in to each piece to create texture, allowing the embossing to cool before removing the stamp.


As each piece cooled down,I rubbed around the edges with my finger to make sure they were all smooth.



The finished set...now being worn by my grandson's girlfriend....
Hope to see you in the challenge over at Altered Eclectics
