Cute as a button
Today I have a baby card to share with you using distress inks and some of Jane’s Doodles fabulous buttons! I love these buttons and they are highly prized treasures in my collection! The layout is the latest FTL #133.
I am entering this card into 2 challenges – Scrapbook Boutique’s button challenge (where at least 3 buttons are to be used) and JayGee Nook’s Challenge #5 where this is the inspiration photo. I was drawn to the beautiful turquoise, yellow and white.
And here it is…
and a close up of those lovely buttons and embossing…
I created the background by embossing a plain piece of white card with a Cuttlebug embossing folder and then using a blending tool and Broken China distress ink, I rubbed over the top and kept rubbing until I was happy with the coverage. I love how the inside of the flowers remained white.
