I ♥ Promarkers - Photo Inspiration



So, today sees the start of a new challenge over on I ♥ Promarkers and this week we have a photograph for  inspiration.  We are sponsored by the wonderful and very generous Joanna Sheen, so well worth playing along for :)

I took the image of buttons on the picture (loosely) for my inspiration, as I dont 'do' buttons very often.  I used this gorgeous free digi-image from Saturated Canary.  Thank you so much Krista! :)  The papers are Papermania (mostly from my scraps box) and the buttons are WOC.  I used a mix of marianne, doo-hickey and spellbinder dies and coloured with PM's.

I am entering this card in the below competitions:

Saturated Canary - Dies and Punches
Wild Orchid Crafts - Creatures - I hope my little bird on this image is ok, if not then please delete my entry :)

Thanks so much for visiting my blog today, its much appreciated and have a great day,

I like the soft monochrome colouring & the fact that you made her blond. I always forget about buttons but really want to start using them more. I like the way your spotty buttons pick up the spotty layers of her dress. the patterns of the papers are intrguing but don't they work superbly being the same colour & combined with white?
