Button Embellishments From Patterned Paper

Hello! We have a new challenge at Incy Wincy Designs. The theme is Animals And/Or Buttons. I am a day late in posting for the challenge. I got busy last week with my son's birthday and his Valentine's class give away. Then, my day offs are done, and I have to go to work. This time, I packed my crafting to go supplies. During my work downtime, I was able to color the image. This is very helpful in cutting back on the time I needed to finish this project. 

The image is printed on Strathmore Bristol paper. I colored the image with Akashiya Sai watercolor brush pens. To mute down the pigment, I applied the color to a palette, picked it up with a water brush pen and applied the ink to the image. 

I die cut the colored image using the egg die from Paper Smooches Easter Eggs die set. I matted this with a green card stock which I die cut using one of the oval dies from the Hero Arts Nesting Oval die set. I adhered the watercolored panel with foam adhesive. 

The sentiment is from the Studio Katia Floral Cross stamp set. I die cut a banner to stamp this on using a die from the Lawn Fawn Fancy Folded Banners die set. I did partial die cutting to extend the length of the banner so the sentiment will fit. I stamped the sentiment using a green ink. I poured clear embossing powder to this, then heat set it. 

I trimmed a 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" Forever Friends patterned paper from my stash. I adhered the matted watercolored panel and the sentiment banner to this. 

For the buttons, I die cut these buttons from the same patterned paper pack. I die cut extra circles using the excess patterned paper. I stacked these circles on top of each other with the button on top to add dimension. I lined the edges with a brown marker. I poked the holes on the stacked button die cut and threaded a white DMC embroidery floss through it. I knotted the floss on the front. I applied Spectrum Noir Clear Shimmer pen to the buttons. I adhered this buttons to the panel. 

Thank you for visiting my blog. I hope to see your creations in the challenge blog. Have a blessed, brilliant and creative day!
