An Altered CD Case

Hello, thanks for stopping by I hope your day is going well.  This is my inspiration creation for the new challenge at Julia Spiri's challenge blog.  It starts today with the fun theme:  Alter Something.

I decided to use this digital image Picking Mushrooms from Julia Spiri's Etsy store, Julia has a wonderful selection of fun and adorable characters and she is coming out with new ones every couple of weeks.

I took an old CD case, emptied it, glued magnetic sheets to the inside, layered my image to embossed cs framing it with lace. I also put the lace on the inside to give it a more finished look.  I think I'll use it for those itty bitty dies and keep it close to my table.

I hope you'll come and join in the challenge sharing your creations with us.  I do enjoy visiting your blogs and gaining inspiration from you.

Julia also has a fun Facebook group where there is a challenge and sometimes a game where you may win one or more of her images or just to share your creations.

Something for You

These are 2 bunnies from Julia Spiri's newest collection I Have Something for You, Bunny and Cake and Bunny and Gift.
After coloring them both with Copics I wanted them on one card, found this style on Pinterest and had to give it a try, much easier for me than it looked.  Now I have another use for my dies and see what else I can come up with.  Come and join the Julia Spiri Facebook group where you can share you creations and enter some contests.
