CD Pendants

For my post on the Smudgy Antics blog I decided I'd try a new technique I have just been dying to do...
I altered pieces of CDs to make necklaces!!! how cool are these?

I made the skull one first....not bad for a first try...I cut my cds down to size (tried breaking them but that didn't turn out as well as planned) I used alcohol inks and smeared them directly onto the cd, then put my cd in versamark and added layers of UTEE.... the cd got super hot so be careful if you try it. after that I wanted my skull to stand out more so I smeared it around in my black ink pad....then I made the heart one...again alcohol inks and layers of UTEE...then I stamped my heart and put some black ink on it to make the heart have more detail...both my stamps came from the Quoth the Raven stamp set....a fave of mine!
and now to finish them off with ribbons and beads...I wanted to make some home made paper beads but didn't think about it until the last min....I'll post pics when/if I do :)

thanks for taking a peek! now go hop onto the forum and check out some other amazing work!
