Mojo Monday challenge #150 looked interesting, and the Inkspirations Colour Challenge #34 was unusual, so I decided to give it a try.
I used the Bella Bleu DSP papers (retiring 31 Aug), and tried Dawn McVey's scrunchy button flowers. Click here for her tutorial - fabulous! Thanks Dawn! LOVE the flower as a focal point - beautiful texture and dimension and very fun to do!
I dry embossed the Close to Cocoa panel for a bit of texture. The sentiment was from PTI's Tea for Two Additions. I stamped More Mustard cardstock with PTI's Background Additions Type II in Close to cocoa ink, punched out 5 scallop circles with SU's scallop circle punch, put a brad through them and scrunched away! Then I threaded a button from Spotlight that matched perfectly with Close to Cocoa with recycled thread from a clothes tag. The coordinating More Mustard brads came from SU's Earth Elements Brads. The scallop edge on the Kraft pattern paper was punched out by removing the paper guides from the EK success corner rounder (broader than the SU corner rounder). Lastly I sponged everything with Close to Cocoa ink to tie everything together.
