C.R.A.F.T. GDT card: Buttons

I'm on my second week guest designing for C.R.A.F.T. challenge, and the new challenge we have for you is a fun creative theme:


Use your creativity and imagine you are building something with the use of buttons.

This is the card I made for this challenge, I based my card on lilacs and purples, teamed up with dark chocolate brown. I used one of my favourite HAnglar images, and coloured with Copics.

Papers are Basic Grey and Coredinations cardstock, very much distressed with my scissors and my own nails :)
I used Milled Lavender Distress ink and Stempelglede grunge stamps in the corners of the image, and with my buttons I imagined I was doing a plant with flowers, using different sizes and shades of purple buttons. I also punched some leaves from green DP using my MS punch.

That gorgeous glittered butterfly was sent to me by a friend, all through the way from Germany (thank you sweetie, it was a joy to use him!)

The inside view.

Copics used:

G0000, 82, 99
E000,00, 13, 25, 31, 47, 95
R0000, 00, 81, 85
V0000, 000, 04, 12

I will enter this card for Quixotic Paperie challenge: Spring (I have leaves, flowers, butterfly.. springy,no? )
