Ai Challenge - Cute as a button

I'm on a card making kick, and I really wanted to play along with the challenge they have going on over at the Art Impressions blog, I needed an excuse to colour up the adorable "Whoots" image... love that owl.

The challenge was to use buttons as embellishments, and for me that really was a challenge! Part of that challenge was to actually find a button. Not my usual choice of embellishment, but I found one that matched and away I went.

Here is the card I came up with:



Ingredients:
Stamp: Art Impressions, Whoots
Sentiment Stamp: Inkadinkado, All Occasions
Inks: Momento Tuxedo Black & VersaFine Onyx Black
DP: Bo Bunny, Suprise
CS: Neenah, Solar white
Bakers Twine: Doodle Bug
Medium: Copic Markers
Extras: Glossy Accents,Wink of Stella, Sakura White Jelly Roll Pen & a random red button
Adhesives: Recollections foam tape & Tombow tape runner

Simon Says... We Love Stamps

Since I needed to make a v-day card, I headed over to the Monday Challenge at the Simon Says Stamp blog. A nice and easy challenge this week, to use a favourite stamp to make a project.
I had the joy of inking up a stamp that I received recently for the first time, which is always awesome.

Simon Says... Get Krafty

Super quick mini 3x3 gift topper card for the Wednesday challenge over at Simon's blog.
The challenge was to use kraft paper, and it was a challenge for me... it was the first time I've ever tried to colour with copics on a darker card stock, interesting results.
Also, since I wanted a particular sentiment & my card stock is too thick to go through my printer, I tried hand writing it... yeeesh, not going to do that again!

Stamp: Penny Black

Cute Christmas Kitty


This card is 2 challenges in 1, The layout is from the weekly sketch challenge over at MFT and the colour combo is from Wednesdays colour challege over at SplitCoast Stampers . This weeks colour combo (#cc453) always baked cherries, was a lot of fun, though I didnt have any artichoke colour ribbon, so I went with a deeper green shade.
