Button Wreath

Well it's countdown till the big day. And I'm getting all festive. So I'm thinking Christmas decks and the lovely Cute As A Button stamps from Sugar and Spice and came up with a Button Wreath.

I mixed red and green ink pads and paper and traditional buttons. I love red and green for Christmas. I painted a polystyrene wreath with dark green acrylic crafters paint as a base so that the gaps between the buttons did not show through.

Some buttons were stamped on patterned paper, some on plain cardstock. Some I covered with Glossy Accent and some I edged with Glamour Dust. Some I tied with thin red ribbon and some I pinned onto the wreath with pearl topped pins.

I joined together J O Y with Glossy Accent, painted them a Christmas red with acrylic crafters paint, then covered with glue and red glitter from the Pink Paislee Pixee Stix-Strawberry colour.
I hung this in my hall to take the pic and the postman just remark "bla bla bla your early but I like that"......... Gob Smacked........ Not that he liked it, but that he was here on the doorstep in light of the problems. LOL

That's fab - people were talking about your design at the Mega crop last weekend and saying how brilliant it was.
