A couple of pieces of altered art today for the Team Challenge over at Aunty's forum. The theme was fantasy - and this is really my first try at altered art - especially the CD - I quite enjoyed doing it.

I stamped the Cherry Pie image on the coaster and clear embossed. Used my new Brayer tool (woohoo) to ink the coaster - added a clear quartz crystal and other embellishments. I really like this and as it isn't a card - I can get to keep it and look at it.

The CD is double sided so if it turns in the breeze I'll still get the image.

On my blogging travels I found another new challenge site for me - Objet D'art and their challenge this week is to alter a tin. I've always wanted to have a go and saved a few tins we received for Christmas just in case I was inspired.

I've altered this tin to house all my blossoms and blooms. No I don't have many LOL!

The wording around the endge of the tin reads:

"Every possibility begins with the courage to imagine"

Bev has some gorgeous blog candy up for grabs.

Arty Girlz challenge this week is to use buttons - funny I was thinking of doing this for inchy challenge blog - I'll have to think of something else now! LOL!

Here's mine - I've done a Valentine's Card
