Dancing On Air

Time for Tuesday Treasures again and the treasure on my card today are the buttons I have made, love making these.
The reason I call them my treasures is because they are bottle tops which Andrew crushed for me so that I can make pretty things with them. Now I don’t think he really understands my obsession with crafting but if there is any heavy donkey work to be done he will help. I have a box full of crunched up bottle tops just waiting to be turned into little treasures. Thanks babe.

Both bottle tops have been Gessoed, whilst still wet I added pieces of voile gauze, the first I made two holes for the cotton to go through then added crackle accents, my second I again added voile but this time added a piece of purple material plus the crackle accents. This piece started off as a 6″ x 6″ piece of cereal box, Gessoed then added pieces of cotton voile gauze, the beautiful stamped image is from Crafty Individuals and coloured with copics. Another thing my little treasure did was buy me all the copics ahhhhh.

Another fave thing I did … haven’t done it for a while though is printed onto kitchen roll then die cut with various dies before adding to the edges. Love the dimpled effect you get when you use a quilted piece of kitchen roll. Below are the two images I printed out.

    Good old cereal boxes,eh, I’ve quite a stock pile at the moment, so it must be time for you to come home for a visit. Think I have sorted my word verification.

    Hello Shirley, gorgeous card, love that lady image! I am intrigued by your kitchen roll technique – you actually put it through the printer? Thanks for popping by to see me and adding my draw to your side bar. There is a draw every month so I hope to see you again! BTW there was nothing wrong with your commenting, I have blog owner approval set up so you don’t see comments stright away. It’s less of a fag for commenters but means I still have some control to stop spam etc. Best wishes, Cindy
