Altered CD by Gemma Hynes

Hi All

So this is my very first post for The Artistic Stamper Creative team. I was honoured to be invited to create along side such a  talented group of people and needless to say there was a lot of jumping around when I got home and shared the news with my partner.


I have always loved music and have collected just a few CDs, Recently I started to add them all to the laptop. Leaving me with lots of now useless disk's, that I could not possibly just put in the bin. So after some very good suggestions from people, I decided to paint them.


 To start I coated them with a layer of Gesso. Over that I used Dylusion's Squeezed Orange and Fresh Lime paints which I applied with a brayer. Using Squeezed Orange  I stamped over the top with the Grid Background



On a stamping block I arranged all the words from the Dance stamp set and stamped over the CD repeatedly to cover the whole disk. I heat embossed this using a clear embossing powder.


On a small piece of card that I had painted earlier with the left over orange paint. I stamped the Dots background in a couple of places, after I stamped the clock face twice to cover the hole in the disk both sides of the CD. To finish off I stamped and embossed the dancer from the dance stamp set and doodled with both a black and white pens.

Thanks for reading,
Gem (inkykitty) xxx
