Noticed anything different? Do you like? So many peeps have been updating their blogs recently, and you inspired me to sort mine out a bit. Now when it came to the blog title I decided to go down the handcrafted route, and in the process came up with a piece to meet the needs for two challenges;
Guessing the denim is obvious?! The buttons depict the layers of a heart. OK, so I've stretched the OCC brief somewhat by using a flower piece cut from a strip of lace rather than ribbon, but it did work better with the ink/Picket Fence. The stamps are from an Andy Skinner set and the 'corrugated' flower is courteousy of Linda Coughlin (it was in my order parcel and I've been saving it for just such an occasion).
The favouite technique? I love embossing fabric and highlighting it with ink, or on this occasion gesso. Rather than leaving it embossed this time I ran it back through the GC to flatten it again, making it was easier to stamp on. All of this was inspired by the amazing work of Finnabair (I highly recommend you check out her site if you are not already familiar with her style).
Huge thanks for dropping in on me and welcome to my new followers. I really value your comments and feedback as you are all such a talented and awe-inspiring bunch for so many reasons.
Hugs, Buttons x
