Stampin' Dymonz Challenge #10

This week over at Stampin' Dymonz' Creative Space the challenge for this week is to alter a CD -- both front and back, using paper. You may paint the paper if you choose; however, the CD must be covered with paper. You must also include ribbon/fibres, 3 flowers and hand stamping.

This was my DT entry to, hopefully, inspire the crafters that visit into joining in.

The image is the "Earth Goddess" from Smeared Ink. Coloured with promarkers before mounting onto some handmade paper. The hand made lace and prima flowers added after punching holes and setting copper tone eyelets with some ribbon and fibres threaded through. The charms and prima flowers from Duckpond Crafts.
and on the reverse

some slightly embossed paper that was stamped with various leafy images in a variety of inks. The beads and buttons from stash.

This is a fun project and helps to save our landfills from materials that are detrimental to the environment. It's an extra "green" project -- we're already re-using/recycling paper with our crafts. Now we've added in the recycling of CDs! So it would be great to see loads of people showing us their altered CDs at the challenge at Stampin' Dymonz' Creative Space.

A couple of challenges I am entering this into
Passion For Promarkers - No Patterned Papers
Try It On Tuesday - Hang It Up
Tuesday Throwdown - Dimension and Texture
Challenge Up Your Life - No Patterned Papers
Craft Us Crazy - Anything Goes

  3. Thank you for taking part in the challenge on 'Try It On Tuesday. This is a really interesting idea, using recycling and a great finish. Hugs Bee on DT for TIOT

  4. Wow! I would never have thought to remake a CE but your project makes me want to. I like the flowers and gems.Thanks for playing in the Tuesday Throwdown.

  5. Hi Croms, what a gorgeously altered CD. However it is not eligible for our "no paper" challenge at PFP this week as you have used papers on the front and back. I hope you will be able to join in again soon. Hugs, Denise, DT x

  6. Hi Helen, thanks for your email clarifying the paper you used. I didn't mean to cause any upset and I am happy to include you in our prize draw. I assumed (wrongly) that the handmade paper was shop bought and not made by you. I hope we can put this little misunderstanding behind us :) Hugs, Denise, PFP DT x x

  7. Fabulous creation! So glad you linked up at Craft Us Crazy!
