Bah humbug challenge #5

Well this weeks challenge over at bah humbug was buttons and bows. I used backing paper and stamps from Elusive Images which hopefully you should be able to get again soon. I decided NOT to use distress inks at all for a change Lol and got the glimmer mists out instead. OMG what a mess I got into !!, I had forgotten how they tend to go everywhere . If the weather is nice, I tend to stand at the back door with it open and card in one hand and spray them so any mess goes outside. Plus I had to run one nozzle under the tap because it had blocked and wouldn`t spray but I got there in the end. You can`t see from the scan but being the very messy crafter that I am, there was obviously loose gold particles of glitter on my table that embedded themselves into the card but added to the overall effect I thought. Adding the bow was the easy bit, but where to add some buttons in ? I found this big lilac button in my box and viola - one big button moon . I seem to remember watching a childrens program called button moon with Mr Spoon, anyone remember it ? Well at least so far I have three Christmas cards to send out so rellies won`t think I`ve emigrated or fallen off of the planet this year. Thanks for looking x Vinny


  1. Great card and I love those TH trees and yes I have heard of button moon but can't remember anything about it.

  2. Very nice! I love that reindeer image. I also love my glimmer mists but nearly all of them have blocked nozzles. It's a pain clearing them every time I want quick spray.
    I used to watch Button moon with my grandchildren.

  3. oh yeah I remember Button Moon - sat through a live performance of that with my two children once - ooooooooooh it was riveting. NOT!
    Think - no I'm sure your button moon is far better. I love that deer stamp - think when the new business opens that is top of my list.
    Great card.
