Bah Humbug challenge...

This weeks challenge from Bah Humbug is to use either a CD or DVD.  I have chosed a CD and coloured it using various Alcohol ink colours.
Image is a Penny Black transparent stamp from the Jolly Friends set.  Coloured with copic pens then his hat and scarf have been 3'D. The little snowman has been mounted onto one of the Marianne dies.
Backing paper is from Dovecraft pack 'Fancy Christmas'.
Kepping the circles theme going I've punched 1" circles and put a die cut snowflake on it and a spotty pink brad in the centre.
The sentiment comes from the S.U. Perfect Presentation set.

Thank you so much Anne for your reply to my question. I did think of using Blending Fluid but I didn't and I guess it was my downfall - not being patient enough. I am going to give it a go again Anne ..
Thank you :-)

Hi Anne ... here I am bringing uo the rear again. I seem to get later every week - slap my legs lol!
I love how you have used the alcohol inks to alter your CD and pleasantly surprised that combining those colours with the contrasting pink works really well. I can't wait to experiment with the ones included in this weeks TSV which I ordered after realising the finished result doesn't have to look like something the cat sicked up and the kids have dragged through the garden lol! That's not to say mine won't look like exactly that but hey ho, it may be a technique I can learn to love and, more importantly, is something I can do one-handed.
