BUTTON IT UP

Good morning all and Happy Fathers day to all you daddies out there. We are going to my sons in sedgfield with my daughter and son in law for a barbeque. Pray the weather holds out for us. Lovely and Sunny so far.

This morning I thought I would like to share with you a card I have made for the Fussy and Fancy challenge. Button It Up. To make I put some distress inks in Bundled sage and frayed corduroy onto my splodge mat and then spritzed with water roughly in the shape of a tree and then transferred to a piece of easy ink card. when dry I then stamped the tree over it in Archival coffeee. I then distressed the edges with the same two colours  but adding a little more green around the trees. I then stamped the sentiment and flowers and finished by adding buttons on the tree and some punched leaves in patterned paper in the bottom left with  a button on top. Hope you like.

Would like to enter this to the

Oh this is lovely. I love the stamping and the blending of the backing, and then you get to those beautiful buttons and leaves. Such a clever and different card.
