Artistic Inspirations Use Some Buttons Challenge

Well today is back to work day for me after enjoying the summer break with my boys.

I know we have six weeks break but it really has flown by, I'm finding it really hard to leave the boys again.

Anyway the reason for this blog is over the course of one week I made it onto three different design teams.

So here is my first creation for the Artistic Inspiration challenge blog.

The theme for this challenge was to add buttons, believe it or not I found this really hard, my usual card style is clean and simple (CAS) and usually one layer as I post most of my cards.

We had some wonderful digital stamps to work with from Sassy Studios, you can find their blog

After numerous attempts and working with two different images I finally cracked it, but boy did I struggle

Here is my completed card

I'm really thrilled with how her hair turned out as usually my colouring of hair falls flat.

WHY not pop along and join the challenge for yourself, I would love to see how you use buttons in your projects, click here

I would also like to enter this card into the following challenges

Challenges 4 Everybody -  #28: Always Anything Goes
Creative Inspirations Paint -   Inspired by: Anything Goes
Glitter n Sparkle -#48  Anything Goes.

Here are some of the other versions that I coloured

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges
Digi Galore Anything Goes
I love to digitally colour my digi stamps as it gives me so much more flexibility with what I can create at the end, I love to add images to canvas bags, cushions and t-shirts.
