love you to {button} bits!


Everyday Button Bits was one of those sets I just had to have at CHA this past July, and while I used it quite a bit initially, it's been neglected as of late, so I inked up the flower stems for Jen's SFYTT. A few other PTI sets used are Faux Ribbon and Background Basics: Text Style, along with my current favorite argyle embossing plate from SU! (Backgrounds I).

I've been wanting to incorporate the scruncy-ruffled ribbon treatment and the stitched rolling landscape that I've seen so many of my favorite stampers using lately, and think I did ok with them. The ribbon is attached with sticky strip and secured on each end with a staple. My rolling ground was first stamped with Text Style and then free-hand pierced and sponged with PTI's Vintage Touch Inking System. I also pierced flight lines for my punched butterfly for a bit of added whimsy. All buttons are tied using SU!'s linen thread.

Now, let's fly on over and see what the SFYTT gals have done with another fabulous sketch from Jen:
