Hi everyone been having a go at making my own buttons to put on my cards....they where made out of fimeo and sculpty.....quite easy to make...althought rolling out and getting the right thickness is an art form in it's self lol... made quite a few as you have to bake the fimo in the oven to harden it......
any way quite impressed with the results not as good as pre-bought buttons....but will add a bit of difference between my handmade cards....will soldier on making them till they are a bit more the moment they are a bit hit and miss with the thickness lol.....the designs where pressed into them from some design sheets you can buy(mine came from hobbycraft)that are rubberised and are just rolled over the top of the rolled out fimo.....thanks for looking and feel free to leave a comment...hopefully when they are more uniformed I might sell them on my blog lol.....

Just magnolia

there card challenge this week was to add flowers buttons and bows....I used flower papers for the back ground....the paper is from a stack that is called dandlion....the magnolia image was stamped onto  a rectangle of card that was cut with the nestabilities as was the scalloped card... this image is one of my favourites....the image was coloured in with promarkers...these are my favourite way of colouring...a bow was attached and the buttons where stuck on with glossy accents...I find this the best adesive to hold these on with...|I always try to finish the inside of the card...the strip inside was cut with a martha stewert punch...thanks for looking...
