Hello there and great start to the new week! Today I'm sharing some ATCs that have already traveled to their new owners. And talking about ATCs - don't forget the free Ustream show tonight at Artists Live channel! More about the project I'm doing in this post (link). Hope to see you tonight!
The main embellishment in these cards are wooden buttons from a Finnish brand called PaaPii (link). The brand has toys, fabrics and home decor pieces, for example and when I saw these buttons I fell in love and just had to order some. They've been waiting for the right project in my stash ever since. I've tried them every now and then on a card or a page, but they haven't previously found their home.
So when I needed to make a set of ATCs for a swap and was going through my stash for ideas then these jumped to my hands and I just knew that that was it! I used neutral colors in the cards but added some green in there to keep them fresh. The main element are the buttons but there's also some masking tape, stamping and twine in the cards on top of a few pieces of patterned papers.
As the buttons are, well, buttons, I added hand drawn stitch lines to the cards and also decorated the wooden buttons ever so slightly.
Thank you for your visit today!
