I layered a strip of layered paper across the lower part of the card and affixed a ribbon over that.

My Besties UK Challenge - Anything Goes & Buttons



Good morning and welcome back to my blog ...

Anything Goes (A) & Buttons(B)

This is any project that includes some buttons.... we all have lots of buttons in a tin somewhere so why not dig them out and see if you can add them to your project...



This is my design team card for the challenge, I loved this new christmas image she is so pretty and I wanted to practice using very pale  colours.. she can be purchased at the store here

Recipe  

Materials

1 /2 sheet coredinations lilac card
1/4 sheet pretty paper (I used maya vintage spring )
Printed image - img408
Pearls
Buttons
Ribbon

Tools
scissors
bow maker
Copics


To make this card I used a square card as a base and layered card and paper 1cm smaller each time to  make the correct layers of card then paper.
I layered a strip of layered paper across the centre of the card and affixed a ribbon over that.  As paper is quite expensive I decided that I would only us a 15cm square piece on my card and I didn't want to waste any ... so I cut a piece 13 x 13cm for the bottom layer then used one of the strips across the centre and the other one I cut into 5cm pieces. I folded each piece and made a tag for each side of the image reversing the patterns to match on my card. added some pearls and buttons with a bow.

Printed out the image on Xpress blending card and coloured with my copics then layered onto lilac card and affixed to the card.

I used the following copics to colour my image
Skin - e000, 00, 11, 21, 04, rv10  r21
Clothing - bv0000, 000, 00, 02
Bow - bv00. rv00
Cushion - rv00, bv02
fur - c0, 1, & blender
Hair - e15, 17

I hope I have inspired you to take part in our challenge .... thanks for stopping by today to visit
