Truly Scrumptious


So this week see's the 2nd truly scrumptious challenge which this time as another great sketch, but with the added twist of including home made buttons on your card. Yikes thought I, home made, have never made buttons and wouldn't have the faintest idea how to. Thought of making some in card. but they looked terrible, so went to find the shrink plastic which hasn't seen the light of day for months and months. I punched 3 circles, punched holes in these using my cropodile, chalked them brown then shrunk. I love this stuff, love watching it shrink and panicking that it won't stop crinkling up, but of course it does.
Have used a sugar nellie stamp for this card and coloured her using polychromos and sansodor, then cut the image out of my nesties and matted onto the scalloped nestie. The papers are again from the K & CO ancestry pack (seems to be a favourite at the moment). The brown card and the sentiment are all stampin up. And of course my 3 home made shrink plastic buttons.
