Buttoned Beauties

Happy Monday everyone, I hope you have a good week ahead. The sun is shining this morning in my little corner of Scotland which is something to appreciate at this time of year!

I wanted to hop on today to share some good news with you all. I’m excited to announce that I’ve joined the design team for Julia McNeill Crafts. She has a fabulous Etsy shop and you might have seen her recently on Hochanda if you are here in the UK.

Today is my first project shareand I used the cute Beckie Buttons alongside some elements from the accessories and a sentiment from the recently released Buttoned Beauties collection . I coloured Beckie Buttons using Triblend markers from Spectrum Noir and added some details with Polychromos pencils and white gel pen. I then fussy cut these elements out.

For the background I picked some script patterned paper from my stash. I then created some inky paper using Brusho crystal Colour on bubble wrap t make a spotty print. Once it was dry I used a stencil to add another layer of pattern. I ripped a panel and added to the card front.

The final step was to add the sentiment. I cut the panel and added some distress oxide inks, I edged it with some vintage photo ink and layered up on Kraft card and a piece of the inky paper.

Julia’s designs are so unique, I love the beautiful girls and she also has some beautifully quirky birds and animals. If you like the look of her work you should check out the JMC’s Crazy Craft Hive facebook group. There are lots of projects for inspiration and the odd free digi stamp too!

Thanks so much to everyone who has left a comment on my blog, I need to make some time to sit down with a cuppa and respond!
