Button Up

Hi Everyone

This is the title over at Divas by Design for the next challenge and we want to see how you use buttons on your projects and I have chosen to make a tag this time round.

Die cut tag.
Cover in black acrylic paint.
Stamp and clear emboss.
Cover with lighter acrylic paints.
When dry rub paint away from the embossing.
Adorn with your favourite embellishments.
Stamp onto scrap paper.
Spray with mists.
Colour in with pens.
Sew buttons on and add lace.

Stamps - Clear Expressions, Andy Skinner, Personal Expressions, TH
Eco-Friendly paints, black, peony, lilac, white, clam shell
Buttons, lace, vintage image
DIs - spun sugar, broken china, vintage photo

Hope you are having a good week.

Take care.

luv and hugs {brenda} xoxox

 I would like to enter this into these challenges -
Cards and More - Lace and buttons
Ribbon Carousel - Anything goes

Oh Brenda,
This is totally adorable!!! I LOVE it!
I hope the tutorial for the videos was fun and if you want to make one all you have to do is choose the style you want, insert your pics, and choose music on their website--it's easy and quick once you do it the first time!
