Truly Scrumptious #2

Challenge 2
Wow, what an amazing response to our first challenge! It was great to see so many entries, including email entries, and we really enjoyed looking at your cards.
We have used Random.Org to select our first winner who will receive the two Easter stamps from Alota Rubber Stamps. Our winner is Iris - Paper Crafting in Cocoa. Please email us with your address and we will arrange for your prize to be sent to you.

Onto our next challenge. We have another sketch for you this time, but there is more. We would like to see some handmade buttons on your card. They can be made from anything; paper, card, fabric, shrink plastic, acetate, fimo.... but they must be made by you. Our sponsor for this challenge is Sketching Stamper Digi Stamps. Christine has designed a range of gorgeous digital stamp images, some of which have been used by our Design Team. The winner of this challenge will get to choose eight images to download.
Here is the sketch:

Well - by the time I'd finished this challenge I had more misshapen, deformed buttons in my house than you would believe. Shrink plastic - I think I'll give up on that stuff, Fimo - I think I'd better give up on that as well. I ended up cutting my buttons out of some lizard skin effect furry type fabric with my cuttlbug. I tried piercing holes in them and using thread to tie them, that didn't look right so I eventually resorted to using small pink pearls as button holes. The papers are a download from Digital Scrapbook Art and I used one of Chris's amazing digi images which I coloured with watercolours, glittered her dress and matted her on to circles cut with nesties. The sentiment is computer generated.

Materials
BC - Bazzill : BP - Download from Digital Scrapbooking Art : Image - Sketching Stamper digi-stamps : Rowney watercolours : Cuttlebug + round nesties & heart die : rest from stash
