Fab 'n' Funky - Button It!

It's time again for a new challenge from the Fab 'n' Funky Challenge and this time we are having fun with some Bugaboo images. Our fab sponsor is offering 7 stamps to the lucky winner of our challenge! Our lovely Wendy, has chosen the theme 'Button It', and she'd like to see at least one button on your creation. I thought it might be fun to do a decorated paper bag, so I've made a little gift bag with the super cute 'Peaches Present' from Bugaboo which I'll be wrapping a 'new baby' gift in.

I printed Peaches onto a digital paper from Raspberry Road then used my Promarkers to colour her up. I love the way the paper creates that hazy warm summer day background. I just thought it would be a fun change from white! I actually meant to add some Glossy Accents to the little balloons the wee mouse is holding and glitter to Peaches bow, but I utterly forgot before taking my pics! So alas, I'll have to redo all the pictures, but not in time for our challenge to go live. So, apologies if you see it before the finishing touches are done!

I've added a cute tiny heart button to Peaches bow and there's a button on the tag (which I should have done in white! So that may change yet). The butterfly strip is a lovely Whimsy Stamps die. I used a Lil' Inkers Square stitched edge die to cut the image out and have edged all the papers with my lovely new Prima Old Rose Fluid Chalk Ink by Ingvild Bolme.

I'm kicking myself that I didn't put the glitter on Peaches bow, but here's a closer look at the cute wee heart shaped button I used on her bow. It's a handmade button I bought from Etsy a while back.

Finally, the tag, with another button for good measure. On reflection, I wish I'd cut the tag from white card rather than the copper sheen I used, it seems a little out of place with the rest of the theme. Even Kraft would have worked better, oh well! Another thing to change when I get a minute!

Thanks for popping in today and do head on over to the Fab 'n' Funky Challenge to see what my team mates have been up to. Come and join in the fun this week with your button makes. See you again soon. Hugs, Wends x
