Here is my weekly inspiration post for the Ching-Chou Kuik Digital Stamps Monthly Challenge Blog.
The week the Design Team have been given the topic of "use some buttons".
Before I do I'd like to remind you that our challenge this month is "PEARLS AND LACE".
For my card I have used the Ching-Chou Kuik image called "Red Poppies" and I have coloured the image in with Promarkers and chalked the background.
The backing papers from a Design Team friend, Lozzy, who sells digital paper packs. The set I have used is called "Copper Delight". These papers have worked well with this femal card but I think they would also be perfect for male cards/vintage/steampunk inspired cards. With a plain piece of brown card I embossed with a button mask to sit under the image.
I have finished the card off with a stamped sentiment, die-cut buttons with thread put through the middle and some gorgeous ribbon from a crafty friend.
