Button up and Saturday candy



Our lovely Sarah would like us to 'Button Up' at Allsorts this week and we have two great sponsors DigiDarla and The Craft Barn .

My starting point for my first card above was a bit of an experiment with the 'Thee Fall Leaves' from DigiDarla, I knew what I wanted to do which was colour them with Dylusions but was unsure if the print ink would bleed. So after printing the out I gave them a good blast with the heat gun before spraying with several colours of Dylusions and was so pleaded that the ink stayed put. The panels were just scraps in Autumnal colours, a piece of corrugated and some cord and the leaves held in place with a beaded pin and button.


My second card is another image from Nicecrane Victorian Young Ladies sheets. The backing DP is Graphic 45, some lace and ribbons and a piece of muslin dipped into tea to age it and matting and layering using these pretty Grand Nestabilities and of course a button.

Now for the winners of last weeks candy who is Lynn from Delphinoids cards, well done please mail me with your full name and postal addy. And this week I have an Imagination Crafts stencil and glitter medium for someone to have a play with, same rules as usual....................

Oh I LOVE that first card! The leaves, the button, the pin... It's all perfect! x

Marianne said...

Beautiful autumn card. Love the rough corrugated piece and the lovely leaves. And the other card has such a lovely vintage feel. Your cards looks great!!

Astrid Maclean said...

Wow, both of these cards are just gorgeous!! In the top one I just love how you have used the corrugated card (so clever and it looks fab with the way you have layered the leaves) and in the second one, again, I just love the way you have layered things with Ignacio's sweet image!

I am leaving this comment because I really love your cards, not because of candy, so I have not put your blinky in my side bar. I have way too much crafty stuff already, so others should have the chance to win (just saying...)

Marianne said...

Hi Brenda, I think your experiment turned out great, making the leaves look almost like the real thing, and they look great against your background. Also love the soft colours and texture of your second card. You make vintage look so easy.
Have a wonderful weekend!

I love how all the papers are pulled together with the rustic corrugated card, the leaves worked really well, I like them, will have to use them myself I think.

Thanks for the chance...

Paula (PEP) said...

The second is very Victorian in feel & I like the way you've really accented her very curly hair with the use of the delicate pointy lace die-cut image panel. The first is the one that catches my attention - that leaf is a real delight with those colours & I like the way you've made it special by using the embellished pin with twine & a button.
