Jess(t) a note


At Craft Your Passion the challenges are Always Anything Goes!We have the fabulous Little Blue Button Stamps as our sponsor 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.

Here I’ve coloured the beautiful Listening to the music Jessica by Little Blue Button Stamps with Copic  Ciao Markers.I’ve gone for a more unusual combo of purple with accents of olive green to compliment the paper and even gone out of my usual comfort zone with her skin tones too!The design has been kept quite simple by using a musical note embossing folder and die cut some circles with outer edge stitching to allow the paper to peek through.Wish the smallest size was…well…smaller so the placement could have been a bit more random but I like the effect anyway 😉 Finished with a die cut and stamped button sentiment.Been wanting to use these again for a while but misplaced the die.I only found it when I was looking for something else I’d lost in my crafty stash!!
