Canvas Heart - DT for MMCS
Its that time of the week again for a new challenge over at My Mums Craft Shop, this week our theme is
Buttons & Ribbons
We are sponsered this week by the fabulous
Well I fancied doing something a bit different today and didn't want to use a few buttons and piece of ribbon on a card. So this is what I came up with.
I took a little canvas (about A5 in size), distressed all round the egdes with Tea Dye Distress ink and then made a little heart out of buttons. To get the heart shape I made a heart in my graphics programme about 10cm dia, cut it out and placed it on the canvas before I distressed. This then left me with a heart shape on the canvas which I filled with different buttons. I added a bit of organza and satin ribbon across the bottom and finished off with a massive bow. All the buttons are different shades of cream and brown and with the gorgeous brown ribbon matches my living room perfectly. (at least I have used a few of the thousands of buttons I have left over from the shop lol!!!)
