Midway at Open-Minded Crafting Fun.

Good morning everyone!!  Today is our midway point at Open-Minded Crafting Fun for our Challenge #6: Use Some Buttons Challenge!  You can also find the Winners and DT Favorites for Challenge #5 here. There is one more week to enter. We hope we see you there :)

Here is my creation:








I used some scrap papers from Club Scrap. I've used several dies.. The edge border is from Memory Box. The corner, circle and label is from Spellbinders. I added some stitching, gems and the buttons and twine. The image is Alligator Tears from QKR Stampede. I colored the image with my Copic markers and did a little decoupage. I layered up everything except for the back hand and leg, then again the front leg and arm.

Copic:
  • Alligator: G20, G21, G24, G28, G29
  • Tears: B91, B93, B95

AMAZING . . . just AMAZING!!! The layering of your alligator really makes it "jump" off the card . . . it is such a GREAT detail that really makes the card so AMAZING! I also love the stitching you did around the inner edge of your card . . . again, another GREAT detail that helps make the card so AMAZING! Thanks for joining us at Blue Moon Creation Crafting Station challenge (aka Get Inky! challenge) for our "circle" challenge. Hope to see you join us again soon! (and GOOD LUCK!!!)
