The new challenge for 15 January at The ABC Challenge - B is for Buttons and Bows sponsored by Pink Gem Designs is on :)
I've never used any Pink Gem Designs images so this is a new one for me!
The gorgeous image I chose for this one is Emma in Hat which I've coloured with ProMarkers and added a bit of biro to highlight her hair. I've backed it with black cardstock before mounting onto the card.
Papers used are from Docrafts Papermainia Bexley Black, Lili of the Valley/NitWits - Solids Bonnets and Bowties and some new paper from Lili of the Valley/Raspberry Road Designs - Mr & Mrs. Behind the image is a paper doily which I picked up in Lili of the Valley a while ago and some silver ribbon (with a hand tied bow - yay I've mastered doing a tidy bow now) bought from one of their Little Bags of Ribbon selections.
The flowers are a pink selection (my favourite colour) from Wild Orchid Crafts. See below for a close up :) and the blingy heart buttons are from The Ribbon Girl.
The final touch are some self adhesive gems which I bought in Hobby Craft.
So it's over to you guys now to show us what you can do with buttons and bows :)
