CD Recycling

Recycled CD Craft
         I made this Floral home decor piece for my mum who will be celebrating her 69th birthday next month. My mom loves flowers and home decor items she can display in a home she keeps beautifully decorated!
3 D decoupaged stamped rose
         Stamped and heat embossed 5 roses from Winnie and Walter In Bloom Elsa's Set ,water colored  and fuzzy cut each rose to create the 3 D decoupaged rose.Here is the tutorial to make a 3 D Stamped Rose : 3 D Decoupage tutorial 
Stamped Rose
      Used a variety of stamped and punched leaves to form the foliage for the rose.The sparkling butterfly was heat embossed in WOW Gold Sparkle and water colored in shades of aqua and turquoise.

Foam Die Cut
          The glittering "Happy Birthday" was die cut from adhesive glitter foam sheets.Love how easy it is to give dimension using foam.
Golden Blue Heat Embossed Butterfly
        I heat embossed a Hero Arts stamp in gold , die cut it in a circle and lightly shaded it in aqua blue and light green and mounted it on the CD with foam tape.
Gold Heat Embossing
             The pearl spray was handmade and fashioned into a heart just like I did for the DIY Paintbrush Holder. Also dotted the golden background with tiny pearls.
