Penny Black Saturday Challenge 4

Another fabulous response to last week's challenge and thank you all for sharing your beautiful creations and inspiration with us.
The challenge this week on Penny Black Saturday is sponsored by "Funky Hand" and is to use buttons and brads. I am so lucky to be on the DT for Funky Hand and get to play with all the gorgeous designs created by Anice. The papers I have used are from "Shabby Saturday" which is available as a download from the Funky Hand website and I know I say this everytime Anice releases a new collection...but this is my absolute favourite...just love the soft muted colours. All the CD's and downloads are jam packed with loads of papers, alphabets and extra pop over and have a look.
The flower brads were pink...but oh so not the right pink so I inked them with a Versamark ink pad, dipped them in White Embossing Powder and heated - result gorgeous white flowers brads.

    Thanks for the very sweet comment you made on my party girl card...I have a little secret...Hero Arts & Micheals sells those pearls in rows on self adhesive tape, for this card it took 4 I think, but it beats glueng one pearl at a time!


  10. Aww, this is lovely, kath! I really admire your inventiveness in cardmaking.

    I sometimes use that embossing technique for brads, but also for converting brass charms into silver.
