Buttons Galore, and more...

Good evening all. Saw a challenge that needed entering this week; it is the Woodware Craft Collection Challenge and has the theme 'Buttons and Bows'.

This is my 'homage' to a design by one of the Goddesses of Crafting - Sue Wilson - and includes her ribbon ruffle concept and the 'leftovers' from a Spellbinder diecut frame. A number of stamps from Dimension Fourth have been used to create the postcard and the penny farthing accent.

The buttons (from Sam Poole's vintage sewing set) were stamped onto antique gold card using Tsukineko Encore Ultimate Metallic ink in gold.  To make them more interesting a few were stamped again and added randomly, whilst others were covered in Glossy Accents. Oh, and there are a few gold staples there too!

Today I got to have a bit of a play, having been sent in a new direction by one of Hels Sheridan's posts, and I am aiming to complete more pieces as a result.  More of this to come... for now it is time to clear up and get some sleep as there is a lot to do at work tomorrow.  Hugs, Buttons x
