Buttons...........




I have just completed a set of three ATC's for a swap over on UK Stampers Forum.  The theme for this month is 'Everyday Things' and I decided on buttons.

The ATC blanks were cut from thin mountboard to the prescribed 2.5 x 3.5 inches and each was covered in printed paper to make backgrounds.  Two blue themed and one sepia themed.





I then used a set of fab stamps from Papertrey Ink to stamp all the other background images in Versafine sepia and Memento onyx black.







I selected buttons from my stash to co-ordinate with the colourway and adhered them with glossy accents, highlighting the buttonholes with blue Stickles glitter glue.  I also added a blob of this to highlight the 25c pricepoint on the sepia set.







A little Liquid Pearls in platinum was added on each ATC and when dry each was edged in Distress inks in faded jeans and walnut stain, applied on cut'n'dry foam.

SID - YES I KNOW I AM SHOUTING!!!

When I first looked at your button cards I was going to congratulate you on finding such gorgeous vintage original button cards - and ask you where you found them.

Then.......reading on .......you made them!!!!! They are absolutely awesome, I am going to have to try and join in with the swap and I might get lucky and 'win' one.
