Morning all, today is a new challenge at Dream Valley, and this time the theme is Buttons. We're sponsored by Digis With Attitude this week, so a lucky winner will receive a prize of $10 Canadian dollars to spend on their images.
I thought I'd try something different this time and make a card with no colouring on for a change. Instead I used some chipboard shapes from Make It Crafty which I coloured using Copic markers and then heat embossed with clear embossing powder - a new technique for me! These 2 gorgeous chipboards, a mannequin and a cotton reel are from a set called Sew It Up, aren't they nice? I used papers from K&Co, which I aged and distresed then added some handstitching to fit in with the sewing/dressmaking idea, and completed the card with some lace from my lovely blogging friend, Kevin, a little seam binding, pearls, Prima flowers and lastly some buttons to follow this week's challenge. Hope you like it.
