Hi! It is time for a new challenge at MDUC. And this time we want to see BUTTONS on your project.
I have decorated a paperbag this time. And tried to make it a bit masculine.
Both from Magnolia's latest collection "Once Upon a Time 2013".
I have coloured the scene with Distress Ink re-inkers and Distress Markers.
Here are the buttons:) I am not sure where they come from, I have had them in my room for a long time. I hardly use buttons on my cards, so I had to do some digging amongst my older embelisshments.
To give them a bit more shabby look, I have painted them with some spots from Crackle Paint-Picket Fence. Behind the image I have put cheese cloth, and a paper from an old book. The cheese cloth is coloured with a homemade mist (vintage photo, opalite pigment inker+water).
In the right corner I have put a Mini Bag, perfect to storrage some tags. The tags I have used are made with a DooHickey called Scalloped Tag. I have decorated them with a lace.
The stamp on the mini bag "Tøff & Kul" is from Stempelglede.
I find Tim Holtz products as his dies perfect for masculine cards. And have added some here, like the Hardware Findings, Mini Gears Set and the Distressed Doily.
Here is also a ticket hidden on the "card" inside (to write the greeting on).
As you can see here, I have put a card inside the paper bag to write on. And fastened the gears on, so it is easier to pull out.
Here is the inside of the card, with a money pocket. It is made naturally of the bottom of the paper bag.
The back. And you can better see the beautiful paper I have used, it is from Maja Design and the Vintage Spring Basics Collection- 6th of March. My favourite paper among the blue ones:)
Are you still here?:) I am soon finished with my post, and thank you for still being here.
I want to thank everyone for their concern about my pregnancy. I am doing fine. Not been feeling sick at all. I am just getting bigger and bigger! I have been told it is a boy. And I can feel him kicking inside me, especially in the evenings. I can't wait to meet him! But still there are some months left waiting.
Hope you liked my "Cowboy-card"!
