When I was younger, a lot younger, I had a collection of buttons that were kept in a faux porcelain container that once contained Avon body stuff. Family friends would donate buttons and I remember once buying a mixed bag from a junk shop. I used to spend many a happy hour (remember there were no computers in those days) sorting buttons in different ways. There was also something very comforting about running your fingers through a pile of buttons and the noise they make shuffling against each other. Simple pleasures and, happy days!
I was reminded of that collection when making this card:
This is one of my Design Team pieces for the Gecko Galz. The image is a digital stamp from the Sew Cute digi stamp set which I simple printed out and coloured in with Promarkers. I picked out one button, cut it out and then gave it a coat of Diamond Glaze before decoupaging over the original.
I stamped happy birthday on a piece of white card and added more stitching.
I don’t know what happened to my button collection, but I’m sure it would come in handy.
Thanks for buzzing by.
