Tatty Button Rescue
I just love the Tatty Button stamps from Creative Expressions. Even better that they are already mounted. This was a work in progress card as when I started I didn't really have a vision in mind. I coloured in the stamp one night when I was feeling a bit fed up and needed something to cheer me up.
When I looked through my Spellbinders I came across the Labels Twenty which was the perfect size. Unfortunately I managed to slip one of my distress ink pads right on top of Tatty! D'oh! Luckily she managed to avoid the cheeky ink and I managed to save her by cutting around her and mounting her onto an orange and white tartan card. This is the first time I used the button mask and was quite pleased with the result using Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Broken China. I made the border using an EK Success punch and just alternated the colours. The flowers were stamped and then cut out by hand. I finished off the card with a small sentiment stamped onto another of the Spellbinders shapes.
