Counting in Buttons



Here is another card made on a Kraft Card Base and cut to make a square card measuring 13.5 cm.  This time I have used printed papers in brick red, pink and olive to compliment the Kraft base.





The base layer was machine stitched as a contrast with other pieces layered on top to build the design. The flag bunting is die cut from thin white card and coloured with pink Copic marker with a finishing coat of fine clear glitter added for a bit of bling.  This was mounted on foam pads as shown.





The main image of button girl was stamped with Memento black ink and paper pieced with more decorative paper for her pants.  The image was coloured with Copics and trimmed and attached on more foam pads.  The sentiment was also stamped, trimmed and applied on pads.






Three buttons were tied through with pink jute string and stuck in place with Glossy Accents whilst the blingy faux diamantes were added at the base of the card to finish.
