At Craft Your Passion this week the challenge is Buttons Galore!We have the fabulous QKR Stampede and The Robin’s Nest as our sponsors too.Head on over to check how to play and win.Don’t forget to take a look at the DT inspiration,they’ve done a wonderful job.
How cute is this little Stuffed Reindeer by QKR Stampede?!He’s been printed directly onto the kraft card blank and coloured with Copic Ciao Markers,trying to retain the tartan detail.Just love how the colours turn out on these card bases 🙂 I’ve added some real buttons,threaded with jute twine,to his eyes and trousers.I had hoped to find a tiny pom pom for his nose amongst the kids crafting supplies but the only ones there were far too big.Never mind.A couple of scrap strips have been trimmed with decorative edged scissors to create a kind of ric rac look.In the top corner I’ve used some Epiphany epoxy button stickers stuck onto more scrap papers.I found these half price in my local craft warehouse and figured that rather than buy the special punch to go with them it would be easy enough to trim around them once adhered to paper.I then used a pokey tool to pierce the holes ready for threading 😀 Worked a treat…Yay!A leftover holly die cut is just peeking out from beneath them.Finally I stamped a sentiment,a freebie from one of last year’s Christmas magazines,in the top right corner.Chosen because he makes me smile 🙂
