Stampotique Designer's Chalenge - Alter It

This time Polly has chosen the theme, and she wants us to Alter  It!
you can alter anything you like, we all have odd items lying around the house that are just crying out to be cheered up with a bit of altering such as unused CD’s , old boxes, photo frames you can even decorate the cover of an old book.
I chose a Maya Road greyboard keyring that had been filed in the big 'must do something with this' box, so out it came and was gesso'd to within an inch of it's life - but first I remembered to take it apart - Oh yes the number of things I have tried to paint without dismantling first, I don't make life easy for myself lol.
So after gessoing I sprayed with various inks - and they sat nicely on the top and bobbed about! OK plan B -Distress Inks,  Stains and stencils, messy but perfect!
Here are the guys in all their glory - sorry about the photography but I seem to fluctuate between total rubbish and OMG is that REALLY the best she can do! Please click on the photo's and all will appear (a little) clearer.
Please check out the Stampotique Designer's Challenge blog for loads of inspiration, and join us for the chance to win a $30 gift certificate so you can add to your colletion. Remember you can use any stamps now, but what a great opportunity to use any Stampotique that you own.
