Buttons, bows and Poppies



Good morning to you all, it's time for our new challenge at Allsorts where Susan would like to see some buttons on our work. Our sponsors are Hobby House and Deedee's Digi's.

My DT creation is a Tattered Lace sample for a recent Create and Craft's programme highlighting the lovely Charisma summer collection of Click and Print images and matching dies and no surprise that the Poppy was my favourite from the collection.

I embossed the base layer and lightly inked with DI Tea Dye, added a border of hessian and lace and mounted the Poppies onto two die cut hearts cut from some glitter card. Three buttons, cord and a seam binding and cord bow to finish.

Happy weekend all.

Wow!!!
Ciao Brenda, la tua card è dolcissima e questi papaveri sono davvero meravigliosi!!! E che bello sfondo hai creato per i papaveri! Mi piace moltissimo l' embossing del background sfumato con il tea-dye!! E i piccoli bottoni sono adorabili! Il pizzo e la juta sono un incanto! Ho pinnato la tua card!

Love it when you share your gorgeous poppy technique on a lovely card. Wonderfully subtle background combined with the texture of the burlap and delicate lace. A good combination of such different textures, yet work great on this pretty card. Also love the button trim. It's just splendid. TFS & Hugs
