BUTTONS AND BOWS.....

is the challenge for this week at Tuesday Taggers. I started it yesterday, thinking I would make a vintage tag (you know, sort of edwardian lady with buttons and bows....) well after a few changes of artistic direction (commonly known as mistakes?) I realised that there was no where on it for me to put the buttons and bows ... funny that. So then I remembered that I had one single piece of 'button' paper left from a Kanban kit (those of you who know which one it is will now be seriously doubting I don't like cute. But it is a VERY VERY cute kit lol). As one avenue of inspiration had led me in completely the wrong direction I decided to use the one piece as a panel on a card and use one of my (again cute...oops what is happening to me?) Sugar Nellie Stamps by Leanne Ellis. I can't do all that clever stuff some guys do with the copic pens (haven't got any anyway) so just watercoloured the main image keeping to a very simple colour palette. Added a bow and a couple of buttons - not bad for someone who allegedly doesn't do CUTE.



Should also mention that this week is sponsored by the Craft Emporium who have put up some Cosmo Cricket papers. I love Cosmo Cricket, the colour and quality is superb so just had to join in this week. Why don't you?

The original tag is still under construction but looking good, even without a single button or bow in sight. Better go and get back in a grunge groove.
