This week the challenge is buttons galore - yes we would like to see you all use buttons on your creations, as well, of course, as a Penny Black image or sticker.
As always we have another fab prize on offer this week - an adorable cutie PB sheep stamp donated by our own lovely Tracie. Well you've got to be in it to win it, so what are you waiting for?
For the second week on the trot I have been inspired by a vintage PB image sent to me by my lovely fellow teamie Debbie. This week it is this cute little girl doing some sewing and trailing buttons behind her ... what could be more appropriate?
Although I adored this image when I received it I couldn't quite imagine what occasion I would use it for .... but this week I needed to make a Get Well card for my crafty friend Sue who has been seriously unwell, and to whom I wanted to send loads of loving wishes. Suddenly the image came together with some threaded buttons and a computer-generated sentiment (which I rarely do) to hope she is soon "on the mend" :-) I also found some papers that look like vintage needlepoint and vintage style lace, and then it was just a case of putting it all together.
Image: Penny Black birthday RAK from Debbie (sorry again I don't know what it is called) - coloured with watercolour pencils, cut out using nesties and edged with distress ink in "antique linen";
Papers: Cosmo Cricket, all edged with "antique linen" distress ink and faux stitching;
Supplies: flowers punched with EK Success "whale of a punch" retro flower, and X-Cut medium flower; spacer from The Hobby House; pearl brad by Papermania; charm from Dolls Made Up; lace from Cathy; buttons and thread from my stash.
Look forward to seeing all your creations this week.... enjoy the weekend!
