Buttons, Brads, and Bling!


That's the challenge at wee Memories this week.  I remembered I had these little flower brads, and searched for a stamp that would have flowers small enough to use these with.  What I found was this fence stamp from Anita's.  Then I overstamped the Stampendous Sunflower Stem twice.  After that I just used colored pencils to color in most of the details, then added my brads on top of the small flowers, the large DeNami buttons to the centers of the sunflowers, and a few gems to the buttons. To finish I wrapped some twine around the image and added my sentiment (Hero Arts CL169) before attaching it all to the Bazzill dotted card base.  Thanks, Jenny, this was lots of fun!  Here's a closer picture, to see the details.
