Truly Scrumptious Challenge #2!

Wow!! There was a huge response to our first challenge - thanks so much to everyone who entered, there were some amazing cards! This fortnights Truly Scrumptious challenge is slightly different - still a sketch but this time you have to use handmade buttons! This can be either fabric, shrink plastic, chipboard, fimo or anything you think of! We have a great sponsor this week, Chris from Sketching Stamper and she very kindly let the DT play with some of her images! One lucky enrty will win 8 of her fab digi images! This little lady is Vicky! I loved the Manga style to her so I thought I'd make her look a little bit quirky with her white sparkly hair! For the buttons, I used various punches and nestabilites to cut out felt shapes, I then punched in some eyelets and threaded a bit of ribbon - et voila! I hope you'll like it and you'll join in with us again!

Supplies-
Image - 'Vicky' from Sketching Stamper coloured with Copics and Sakura Stardust
Papers - Dasiy Bucket (front and back of one sheet)
Buttons - handmade with Heart shape and Flower shape Woodware punches and small circle Nestabilities onto felt
Eyelets - Doodlebug
Ribbon - stash
Sentiment - made on the PC and printed onto Safmat film
