Recycled craft

Was thinking for so long to do something different in recycling... 
And ya in this I've come up with many of the recycled materials here...
And seeing the challenge put up in Itsy Bitsy , I decided to collect certain things in colors of Silver
The base which is of silver color is the top of a jewellery box which I wanted for a long time to use it for some craft purpose as the box was damaged...

The wordings here read "Welcome to the world little one"... If its not clear in the pic.. I cut this using my Silhouette Cameo... Actually my first cut using it... I used Wedding card for the cutting and added Silver 3D outliner to add an effect to it... The white paper behind the cutting is also from a wedding card .. Stuck them to a small piece of granite stone which was lying waste around the house...
The thermocol heart on both sides ,I actually collected them from a shoe box and added pearls to them.

I did the mini cradle using craft sticks and painted them using Acrylic white paint.. The flowers and butterflies are made using A4 sheets and wedding cards

Coming to the Swan :-)..... The mother duck is painted white using Acrylic paint.. I used my baby boy's toy for it ... (Hope he doesn't mind..Lol) and the baby Swan I made it myself using Shilpkar clay. The silver ball in the middle my hubby had collected and given me once and now I've made use of it :-) ... Finally I added our snap to my craft stick  handmade canvas stand :-)

so what do you all think... Howz it ????
