One Stop Crafts Challenge #101

I am hoping that blogger has worked a little magic and posted this on time, I am scheduling my posts at the moment.
Hi all today we have a new challenge for you at One Stop Crafts and this week we would like to see you
Our sponsor this week is Craft Brulee
This is a new store offering £10 to the winner to spend on some goodies from their site.

I decided to alter an old CD, which I have loads of, and made a wall hanger, shown below.

I used one of my favourite Penny Black stamps, inked with Momento Black Tuxedo and coloured with Copics, I did two images and then cut them out, ready to mount.
I used my circle cutter to cut out the circles the same size as the CD, the papers I have used are Basic Grey.

I then proceeded to create a couple of flower displays I added Diamond stickles around the petals. I then added some flower gems and white pearls then mounted the images with silicone for a 3d effect. I punched the hole with my Crop a Dile and threaded some pink ribbon through.

This is a side view which hopefully shows the 3d effect better. This little beauty is now proudly hung on my wall in the living room so I can see it every day.

I hope this may have given you an idea as to something to alter, but it can be anything, a box, a picture frame but for even more ideas please see the other DTM projects they are top notch.

I hope we see you at OSCC this week with your wonderful projects.
Hugs to all see you later.

And the new blog layout look great, me thinks you are a very clever girl making it look this good. It scares me no end every time I am forced into changes on mine.

I did read your post yedyersay, but mr Blogger had other ideas when I tried to comment. I am always here for a chat whenever you feel the need.

Sending you love and hugs.

Oh my gooooooooooodness, I LOVE THIS!!! I adore PB, especially the earlier critter creations, and you have coloured her so well!! The embellies are fabulous and I love those colours together!! I read the posting below this and I hope you are feeling better soon hun. You are in my thoughts, I know "that feeling" isn't something you can just shake off, but I hope that it passes quickly. As for the blogging, well, it should be fun, once it is more of a chore than a fun escape from reality, then something went wrong!! Sending cyber hugs!!
