This week our extremely Krafty Krista is the hostess and she would like us all to use buttons as the main embellishments on our cards. Not too difficult, right? Well, unless you don't have any buttons. If not, you may have to cut some off your shirt or sweater or your hubbie's best slacks!! Ha Ha!! No, really, don't do that. Krista has used Becky Broadsword on her card, so that's the stamp you will win if your card is randomly chosen.
Anyway, I wanted to use Cap'n Charlie for my card. I had decided that I wanted to use this DP of the constellations for my background as I don't have anything really piratey like a treasure map or the like. Since pirates used to sail by the stars, I thought I could use this. So I used a card base of Vanilla and glued my starry paper to it. Then I punched out 4 squares from some more matching paper from my DCWV Natural Stack and 4 scalloped squares of Vanilla with my Mega punches. I spaced them evenly on the background, then placed some matching buttons on, which I had threaded with some copper wire. Then I placed Cap'n Charlie off on an angle in the centre. I had coloured him with my Copics, torn the edges, then used some copper embossing powder on the edges.
So that's my Cap'n Charlie button card, now we would like to see your creations. If you use a Kraftin Kimmie Stamp, you will be in the running to win Becky Broadsword.
Have fun and we'll see you next week.
