Truly Scrumptious - Week 2

Challenge_2_handmade_buttons

Well what a fantastic response we had to our first Truly Scrumptious challenge. It was great seeing all your wonderful cards.

This week we have another sketch and we are sponsored by the talented Christine Dark - Sketching Stamper Digi-Stamps. Christine has got some fantastic images to work with.

Our additional wee challenge is home-made buttons.

I used Christine's wonderful Vicky image and coloured her with watercolours - I made paper "buttons".

I also made another card for our challenge and used my first ever Shrink Plastic to make the buttons.

I must say I quite liked the Shrink Plastic - amazing to watch!!

My image is from Bootiful Stampz.

So we would love you to have a go at our sketch and join in with your hand made buttons!!

Have Fun!!

What a lovely girl on the first card. It was a long time ago ( I was maybe 15 years ) I tried shrink plastic the first time. And it is funny to watch it work.

Two fabulous cards Dawn. Love the colours and paper on both of them. Your shrink plastic button are fantastic - can I have some lessons please (my shrinked plastic end up in the bin - I've spent a fortune and not one has ended up on a card yet - lol).
