Hello. Blessed Sunday. Today's card is my Design Team Member entry for this weeks Magnolia Down Under Challenge. The challenge this week was to use buttons on your card.
Since I took the class in brayering at my local stamp store, I thought I would try a Tilda using this method (Michelle Zindorf's signature method of stamping). I stamped Tilda with the leaves swirling around her. I colored her using Copic and Tombow markers. I then used an embossing pen and went over all the coloring then used clear embossing powder to seal the color. Now comes the brayer part. I did the ground and the sky with the brayer. I stamped the tree in black and sponged in the horizon lines . The three maple leaf buttons on the left are actual buttons that I strung gold cord through. The four faux leaves on the right were made from punches! Yep, this technique was highlighted on Split Coast Stampers last week. You just punch 5 or 6 shapes from cardstock. Glue them together. Make your button holes. I used my crop-a-dile (thanks Sis) and it went through all the layers. Put one coat of diamond glass on the top layer to make them shiny. You can also make round buttons and stamp something on them. This is a really clever idea because you can make any shape that you have a punch for!
Stop over to the MDU Challenge site, and check out the other gal's cards, a wonderful assortment of takes on this button challenge. There is also a sponsor this week, Scrapbook Boutique.
Have a great Sunday. Thanks for stopping by. Until tomorrow..............
