As I was blurfing (blog surfing) last week I came across Mel Stampz and a cool way she make some faux buttons. You know what happened next.... I grabbed the supplies and gave it a try! They were so fun! Here's the card that uses those cool fakes....
The card design was a sketch challenge on a blog that I forgot to write down. Anyway, I used Emma SWIC paper, a cuttlebug embossing folder, the Clear & Pearl Gem collection, a Pearl Ex palette, and a 5/8" circle punch. Oh, the phrase is from the A Thousand Thanks hostess level C set.
Here you have the closeup of the faux button. I also used Glossy Accents on the painted watercolor paper that was diluted with water to thin.
So, check out Mel's post and try these! I have a couple more to play with yet.
