Buttons, Bows, or Both?


This week the Art Impressions blog has challenge #20 up for us.  Gosh, there is just so much talent over there!  I am back for my second week of fun.  I'm just so glad I found this place to play with my crazy collection of stamps.   The challenge is as my title reads, Buttons, Bows, or Both.

I started with an ivory card base, and layered on DP from DCWV.  My Art Impressions image is from 1996 and is #L-1350.  Isn't this cake sweeter than sugar?  Can you believe I have never inked it?

My coloring was done with Copic Markers, and I decided to use both, bows and buttons.  I accented in spots with Stickles for added sparkle.

My win last week netted me a $10.00 gift certificate, which I happily just spent!  I wish I had every stamp they make!  They just make me smile!  Thanks for taking a peek!

ooh, I want a cake just like that and ice cream on the side, please!!! What a great card and couldn't you just kick yourself when you finally do ink a stamp and it comes out like this....I know I've been there myself, and wonder why I haven't used it before now. I need to check out this company, I have never heard of them before. Tfs and have a wonderful week.
