Handmade Buttons!

Is what we want to see from you this week over at Delicious Doodles. The prize this time is the choice of five digis from the Delicious Doodles Shop. When I initially saw the details for this challenge I was totally uninspired, but have to say that once I got going I really enjoyed it and ended up making loads of buttons for future projects.


I used the image Zebras for this card and coloured it with Distress Inks and Promakers. I stamped directly onto the DP's using Stazon and My Paper World Grasses and Embellishments Stamps.

The button was made using nesties, shrink plastic, Distress Inks and the above stamps. Before shrinking the buttons I dotted the images with Sakura Gel Pens to add a bit of glimmer (well you didn't think I'd manage to make a card with no shimmer, sparkle or shine did you?). I made the rosette using this tutorial by the fabulous Laura.

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Crafty Cardmakers - Plastic
Incy Wincy - Punches or Dies
Simon Says Stamp and Show - Stripes
I Did It Creations - Anything goes
Allsorts Challenge - Inspired by Nature
Crafty Calendar - Love
