Corrosive Challenge – Button it up!

January 30, 2011 at 10:39 am 3 comments

Hi everyone. This week’s Corrosive Challenge is to use buttons on our creation. I love some of the sets from Paper Trey Ink., and I happened to have the Everyday Button Bits set, so, of course I had to use this for our challenge this week. I used a sketch from Card Patterns #100 as my starting point (I always need a sketch to work from). Here is the sketch:

I really like using buttons on my cards, but they are typically relegated to being the addition to my bow. Well, that was true today as well, but they were also part of my focal image. Here is the card I came up with:

So, here is how the card came together:

Card Stock – 110 lb. white Strathmore, Early Espresso (SU)
Patterned Paper – K & Company “Poppy Seeds” Designer Mat Pad
Stamps – PTI Everyday Button Buts
Ink – Chocolate Chip (SU)
Accessories – Dark Brown Satin ribbon, PTI green vintage buttons, CB EF, green embroidery floss

I think that’s it for now. Thanks for having a look today!
