PTI July 2014 Blog Hop #2

July Blog Hop Inspiration

For this card, I focussed on the spools of thread and the buttons. The stamps are from an old favourite of mine, "Quilter's Sampler". I coloured the thread with my Copics, and glued on some twine that I coloured with the mint green Copic. The background is done with a stencil and Distress Ink (I didn't have the colour I wanted, unfortunately) and a large stamp from the "Button Up" stamp set. Some Button Stacks dies, and the "Filagree" border die, finish it off.
Thanks so much for looking, and I appreciate any comments! Have a great day!
