Plain Dotty!

The challenge this week at Digi Doodle Shop’s Best is to use BUTTONS!If your anything like me you LOVE buttons.Please visit the challenge site for full details on how to play along and see how you can win a $10 Gift Certificate to spend at Digi Doodle Shop!Don’t forget to gain some inspiration from the wonderful DT projects too.

I couldn’t think of a more perfect image to go with buttons than this delightful Lady Bug from Digi Doodle Shop.With the 50% off sale being extended until 15th January now would de the perfect time to grab this image along with a few others!The image has been coloured with Promarkers and the sky area has been muted around the edges using the Blender pen.The spotty red card has been printed from the Dreams Come True CD-rom from Funky Hand.Originally it’s black spots on a white background but the beauty of it is you can print it onto any colour card or paper.I die cut some flowers from red felt and threaded a large button with some red raffia for texture.I also stitched the buttons onto the flowers as it’s difficult to use glue with felt.
