Live Life In the Moment
This is a standard A-2 card and my first one with a Silhouette cut using one of my designs (the butterfly). I don't have it down to a fine art yet, but getting there, lol. I created the button background with the Silhouette button image, making it different sizes and then creating a compound image and using the Silhouette pen (black) to ink it out. I then took the Copic Airbrush and markers to it. Did just a tiniest bit of distressing around the edges and before mounting it to my card blank I pulled thread through 3 of the buttons, doing an "X" on two and tieing the top one into a bow. This is the reason I took the plunge into the Silhouette, so that I had more freedom to create what I wanted start to finish. The sentiment is a Tim Holtz Stamp.
Have a great week and thanks to everyone who stops by, your comments and opinions are precious to me, so thanks bunches, in advance. Hugs
