Button Up



Hi All,

This week over at Incy Wincy Challenge Blog it is the 'Button Up' Challenge.
We were to use an image provided by Aspire To Thrive Children's Charities Inc. shop formerly known as Incy Wincy. I have chosen the dog which can be purchased through our online charity shop which is: www.aspiretothrive.com.au/shop .
The image I chose to work with for this challenge is the Dog.

I started with a fawn coloured cardstock and added a forest green layer paper as the first background layer. I was a little stumped as to what to do next and came across some textured brown and light green papers. I cut the brown to quarter the size it was and found it to be perfect for the bottom half of the card and added the lighter green layer on the top half.

I went around the edge of the forest green layer with my green metallic pen. I coloured in the outer edge with white colour pencil for a lighter effect. As the heading suggests, we were to also use buttons for this challenge and I decided to use some buttons with animals and a smiley face as the sun.

I cut out the pieces for the Dog as it is in 3D and taped it to red backing cardstock I had on hand.
I added the sentiment "Get Well Soon, Thinking Of You" and felt perfect for this type of card.
I finalised with bling on the corners of the layered papers.

Please feel free to comment as all feedback is gratefully received and appreciated.
Thank you for visiting my blog.
