ALTERED CD - COFFEE & CREAM - GINGERSNAP


Hi, I apologise for posting this Altered CD for the Gingersnap Creations - Color Challenge: Coffee and Cream late, or should it be latte........... I know bad joke..........
You can make anything you like providing it has the colours Coffee and Cream.

This is what I love about Gingersnap challenges its open to all forms of art/craftings. Why not pop over and have a look, there is some great inspiration from the DT.

Mine was kept simple, by altering a CD, using Laura Ashley Flock Paper, Joanna Sheen Stamp, Brown Satin Ribbon, Brass Frame (that I picked up at the Junk Market for 10pence), plus Gold and Brown Paint Dabbers. Yep those chocolates are real...........but they no longer exist as they went in my tum................

Hope you like the CD and want to have a go yourselves.........the more the merrier. Have a Happy Day and take care, will see you all later, Annette x
