Hello! We welcome you to another week and a new challenge at Tuesday Alchemy. How about some buttons?
I rarely throw out old clothes as I donate them, so I don't normally get my buttons from that. Instead, I try to save the extra buttons I get with new shirts and pants to use. The larger button on the yellow flower center was from a shirt that I bought a while ago. The other 2 small, colorful ones are from an embellishment set I bought a few years ago. This challenge has brought to my attention that in all the years I've been crafting, I have not used one button! Isn't that weird? Well here it is ladies...my first card with buttons. :D
For this card I used buttons on the centers of the flowers. "For you" was handwritten with orange colored pencil. Leaves were quilled using a mixture of yellows and oranges.
Here is some extra button inspiration that I found from this lovely blog called It's Written On the Walls. They've compiled a list of button art on the web for you to consider. Check out this one for example:
Isn't it great? :)
