One Mans Journey

I have just taken part in an altered CD swap over on UK Stampers Forum.  I decided to do a vintage theme mainly with Tim Holtz materials and stamps.

The CD was covered in letters backing paper (Lost & Found) adhered with matt medium and trimmed once dry.

I then stamped with the tatty sunburst TH stamp with onyx black Versafine ink at the bottom and the retro circles TH stamp with Versamark and heat embossed this with claret embossing powder on the top left.  The journey word (Invoke Arts) was stamped in archival black ink on the top right.

The circles and word were highlighted with gold and white Posca pens.  The military man was cut out from another piece of Lost & Found TH paper, stuck in place and highlighted with black Posca Pen. Holes were punched with the crop-o-dile for two star snaps and two gold eyelets as shown.  The edges of the covered CD were rubbed over with black soot Distress ink on cut'n'dry foam.

Finishing touch was to thread some brass chain through the top eyelets and join with a triangle split ring to hang.
