Button, button who's got the button...

So I went in a bit of a different direction with this week's Anyone for Anya challenge. The challenge is to use buttons, brads and bows on a card and I decided to change things up a bit and make my own decorative buttons using my TGF fairy stamps. The process is pretty simple; I started with some Technique Tuesday chipboard tiles, inked them up with some color and then stamped the image on with black ink. I then used a small hole punch to make the button holes and once that was done I used Versamark ink and UTEE (ultra thick embossing enamel) set with my heat gun to give them a shiny appearance. Voila! TGF buttons! Too bad I can't wear them on a coat or something... ;)
The candy, candy, candy is still going strong so if you haven't yet posted for a chance to win go here. :)
I'm Audi! :)
