Alphabetty Birdy...

... teeeheee, I have been playing this morning with some inks and papers and stamps... you know, the usual stuff that makes me happy... and have altered another CD *mmm, this is getting a bit of an addiction LOL*... this time using Vintage Shabby papers to cover the CD and then inking and stamping onto them...I remember last time I did an altered CD a few peeps asked me what I used as glue... the answer is Claudine's Multi Medium... tis THE best for this type of thing as it sticks to most surfaces and is really smooth too... I apply it with a bit of Cut & Dry foam so that means I don't overload the surface...so no nasty bubbles :O))




I added some bits and bobs to the covered sides... Tim's Alterations - those are my favest thing of this year I think... I love the shabby flower that I build up to make a crysanthemum... it looks so good in loads of different colours...



The birdy, isn't he just soo cute... I have cut him out of Grungepaper and then inked with Pumice Stone *oh yes, that is another fave from this year LOL* and then used a Mini Alphabet stamp to decorate his body *hence the daft title to this post*




I made the hanger the same way as the others... Swivel Clasps... beads on thin sticky things with a bobble on the end... no idea what these are called but if you thread the bead/pearl on and twist the top over you get a little charm... I know jewellry makers out there are probably shaking their heads at my thickness... please put me out of my misery and tell me what they are called!! ROFL All the stashy bits I used are available from The Artistic Stamper.




So... have you been to see Jennie today??? You have got until midnight to be in with a chance of winning Blog Candy... all you have to do is answer a question.. now I could give you the answer cos I know it... ok, I will give you a hint... the answer is between 1 and 100 ... oooh, I am a meany aren't I?
