Hi there, weekend at last and after some awful weather the sun is finally starting to peep through. Before I go and tackle the rain forest, oops I mean garden lol I just wanted to share this card. This weeks challenge at CD Sunday has a buttons theme and coincided with this gorgeous Tatty Button stamp arriving from the lovely Lynn at Crafts 4 You (half price so I just couldn't resist lol) After another manic week at work I wasn't sure if i'd get my card finished in time but here it is although the photo is terrible for some reason.
I stamped Tatty with memento ink, masked her and stamped the fence behind, coloured the image with promarkers and inked in the sky with a scalloped mask and some tumbled glass distress ink. I've watned to use a gingham paper but of course I didn't have the right colour but fortunately I rememberd a free cd that came with a magazine called Complete Cardmaking, it has some gorgeous Christmas bps on it and this lovely blue gingham paper. The other bp from Prima Madeline pad. I've added some tiny buttons from the Stamp Man and some ribbon from my stash. To finish off I punched some flowers and die cut some swirls from the leftover bps and inked them with distress inks. I embossed the flowers on the reverse to curl the petals and layered them up with a button in the centre.
I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
