BUTTON, BUTTON, WHO'S GOT THE BUTTON?
Simon's Challenge this week is "Buttons", so I decided to create a canvas using the Tim Holtz Sewing Room die as the main element and embellishing it with BUTTONS. I used a 5" x 7" mounted canvas as the foundation and colored it with Weathered Wood Distress Ink, accented with Vintage Photo Distress Ink. I stamped it with a stamp from the Tim Holtz Papillon Rubber Stamp Collection and then used embossing paste to stencil it with a honeycomb design. I cut the dress form and spool with the Tim Holtz Sewing Room die and colored them with Vintage Photo Distress Ink. I wrapped the dress form and spool with metallic ribbon. White paper flowers were sprayed with Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist and assembled with a small brad. The outer edge of the canvas was wrapped with Tim Holtz tissue tape.
This project was a departure from the "usual" for me and was a lot of fun as well as a good learning experience -- I hope you enjoy it too. I am entering it in simonsaysstampandshow.blogspot.com Thanks for stopping by.
