Well that was a short week wasnt it, where did it go. I hope that you all enjoyed a lovely Easter break and the weather didnt spoil everything for you.
The lovely Fleur has chosen this weeks Allsorts Challenge and it is entitled Buttons and Thread and I had the perfect set of stamps that I felt would create the focus for my offering.
As you can see I have used the Vivienne and Jasper set of stamps from Kanban. I just think this set is so cool! (not sure if a woman of my age can say that!! )
I stamped the image with Archival black and then coloured it with Pine Needles DI. This isnt one that I use often, apart from Christmas, but it really suited the project. I have also used Broken China in the Distress Markers to highlight the pleated areas. We have just had them delivered into the shop and they are just fabulous! If you have a chance to try them out do.
I used the Button mask from a Special Touch of Masks for the background and embossed this onto some of the Kanban core cardstock which again is a fantastic addition in the shop. I embossed it and lightly sanded it back to reveal the stunning alternative colour. I used bakers twine to thread through a few of the buttons for effect. (I didnt have just the right colour so I distressed it a little with the Pine Needles.)As you can see I cut the image out using a Spellbinder label to frame it. Vintage ribbon, a zipper rose and swirls finish the project off. I had a fab time creating this and I hope that you like it. Please pop over to the Allsorts Challenge Blog to see all the other projects that the DT ladies have done.
I would love you to pop a comment in, let me know what you think to the project. Let me know if you have had a go with the Distress Markers too.
Hope that you all enjoy a fabulous weekend and don't forget to pop onto the Allsorts Blog.
Bye for now
