Buttons and Bows.

Buttons !

Not something I use very often.
Buttons are something I love but never actually use very often, again its a colour matching thing. I think myb i'm just a little to fussy... a friend said it's not ment to be perfect, it's handmade. Duh? It's even more important that every touch is just right, every line is straight and every colour stays in the lines, NO bits of white edges on your cutting out.
It's a gift, it shud be the best!

In my wierd and wonderful mind anyway!

Do u agree?

Here is my entry for Passion 4 Promarkers.  No 39.

Papers are MME -  Pretty Please Spring Papers.
I used 7 buttons. and ribbon on both front and body of the card.
Sarah Kay Image is a colouring page, pringted, scanned, shrunk  and printed on cardstock.(Google - sarah kay colouring).


Promarkers used were...
 Skin Tones - Ivory, Vanilla and Oatmeal.
Hair - Vanilla and Tan.
Trousers and Top - Lilac, Lavender and Bluebell.
Pocket was Powder Blue and Rose Pink (spots).
Flowers - Rose Pink and Cerise.
(Not the best combo, I need more pinks that actually look nice 2gthr.)
Leaves - Forest Green and Pear Green.
Hat - Tan and Cinnamon.
Bow on Hat - Lilac and Bluebell.
