Cute as a …

Today is my very first post for That Craft Place as a Design Team member.  My previous post told you all about how excited I was about being asked to be part of it.  This fortnight’s challenge is Buttons.  When I found out, all I could think was ‘Cute as a button.’

It’s an atc where the bone tilts Wilson’s head.  I coloured Wilson with copics and cut him with my silhouette (Wilson’s head is cut separately from the body for this).  I also cut the atc on the silhouette and used a newspaper pattern from the silhouette shop.  I used a font from the silhouette shop as well.  Stacey posted a video about how to faux stitching on the silhouette which taught me how to get things to print without using the silhouette pens.  Always good to learn new things! I then used vintage photo distress ink on Ditzie Designs coffee rings stamp to stamp over the top.  I also inked the edges in vp distress ink.  I used DecoArts Satin Varnish over everything because I love the texture it leaves.  I also used alcohol inks to age a white button from my stash and attached it with glossy accents.  I used glossy accents on the eyes and nose to highlight those spots.

I’m a dog person (although I did have a 7 year fling with some cats in Canada).  Not quite two years ago, a black and white terror came into my home and stole my heart.  You can see him above on the banner.  Scooter has grown into a lovely dog who is incredibly well behaved at home and absolutely barking mad on walks.  I do reckon that since he’s so good at home I can put up with the nutso hour on the walks.  So, are you a cat or dog person?
