Button up!

that's the challenge for you this time at Paper Play
use Buttons
on your creations,

As you can see I've used a large clear button on my snowflake, but of course being me it had to be grunged lol, so it's had a coating of crackle paint on it,
Tilda is again coloured with copics and this time for a change I have used a lovely lace trim behind the main image before the scalloped Nestability for added detail, 
my trees and Doo Hickey fence are again edged with vintage photo distress ink and then liquid applique for the snow,
The large pearls are the other buttons I have used, yes some more from my mums button box,
my papers are from Magnolia and some are torn then edged with vintage photo DI too,

My snowflake is made up of a large quickcutz snowflake die which I have edged with the vintage photo DI then I have layered  another smaller Marianne die snowflake on top which I have cut out of cardstock then distressed with the crackle paint, then of course my grunged button is on top with a little raffia ribbon tied through,

P.S Sorry I've not been in touch hun, life has gone a bit pear shaped & idiot here set my shoulder pain off by not thinking & pulling the handbrake up using my bad arm instead of doing it with my right hand & my god does it hurt, so I've not been blogging until now & that's only because I can't put my DT comms off any longer :)

Tammy said...
