~Buttons, Glitter and Webster's!~
How delightful! All the things I love...Handmade touch of buttons, the glimmery sparkle of chunky glitter, and delicate papers and trim from Webster's Pages!
I wanted to create a simple card with fewer layers than I normally do - but I found it pretty bare for my liking...And decided to create an easy embellishment with lots of teeny little buttons...What do you think? My inspiration for this card is from one of my most favourite creative idols, Melissa Philips :) Her work never fails to make me swoon!
I started with a shape I love so much and traced it onto some lovely Webster's Paper from this 6x6 paper collection....I cut it out and glued pink buttons of different sizes to fill in the shape.
I added a bit of white paint before I added the glitter....And that is pretty much it! Super easy, huh? And a great way to use up all of those buttons kicking around in your scrappy stash!
I layered a chipboard frame over the button bundle and added a Maya Road crystal trinket (which I painted white and glittered).
Lastly, I added a little banner and a wonderful flower - my fave at the moment - gifted to me by my sweet friend Bonnie (Thank You!!!!)
I hope you'll give this technique a try - it would be so lovely to do this on your favorite chipboard pieces, alphas, or as a frame around a photo!
Wishing you all a happy day,
p.s. **THANK YOU** for all the love and wonderful comments during the TCM blog hop! Now wait until you see the gorgeous stamps in the upcoming November release...Yikes, it's gonna be looooooong and agonizing wait for the previews!
