Monochromatic

This week the Cupcake Craft Challenge wants us to make a Monochromatic project and the Prairie Fairy Designs are kindly sponsoring with a prize.

The image and the gorgeous text stamps are Elusive Images. The papers are from my stash and I used a Cuttlebug die for the flowers. The dots are made with Liquid Pearls.

The buttons are made out of paper clay, I rolled out a thin layer and used a glue cap to cut them out, pressed with a Cuttlebug folder to get the swirls on them and used a toothpick to create the holes. After drying over night they were coated with PVA glue, it works as a varnish too. You could mix the paper clay with small amounts of acrylic paints or paint them after drying. Easy peasy lightweight buttons. Hope they'll survive a delivery with the mail.

  6. Wow - I think this card is just beautiful. I love how you've cut the flowers out of the same paper as your background - creates a subtle, but effective embellishment. :-)
