Altered CD with SweetPea
I had another go at altering a CD as per the challenge over at Stampin' Dymonz Scrap Shack. Making the holes on this one was easier. I used my leather puncher and eyelet setter as I don't own a cropodile.
The backing is made from foil covered with gesso, kitchen towel, more gesso then painted with acrylics and rubbed over with metalic paste as illustrated by Terra over at the Smeared and Smudged forum. Edging is satin seam binding. SweetPea image, coloured with pencils, blended with mineral oil then fussy cut out. Lace stuck on to bottom (with a touch of glitter through the lace holes) and to hang it with. Holes have copper eyelets set and pearls and fibres threaded onto nylon cord with some ribbon tied on. Pearls stuck round the edge as well.
I am entering this into the challenge over at
