I'm sharing a card I created earlier this week for AnnaBelle Stamps' latest challenge - Say it in Lime, Black and White. It's such a fantastic colour combo (though I don't think I did it proud) I just had to play along...
As a standalone stamp, this background chevron style pattern from Backgrounds by Design 3 rocks! I'm going to use this one similarly again, I'm sure of it. I stamped it using Kaiser pigment ink in 'Splice'.
The buttons are cheap white ones I found at a bargain shop, coated with Versamark to make them sticky, then covered with the Splice ink, dipped in clear embossing powder and finally heat set to seal. I left the bigger button overnight after coating it with the pigment ink and rubbed off the excess in the morning to make it a lighter shade. I got the idea when the pigment ink stained my clear stamp a lovely shade of green. ;)
I used some embroidery floss to finish off the buttons and adhered them to the front of the card using mini and micro glue dots.
The sentiment is from the Squared Mother's Day set from Annabelle stamps using Versafine Onyx Black ink.
Don't forget to email me your address so that I can send you a Christmas card! I'll be taking names and addresses until the 5th of December.
That's all for now. I'm going to go downstairs now and cool off under the fan :)
