2 Ways With Purple Pumpkin Spotty Buttons.

For those of you who don't already know Purple Pumpkin, where ya bin??? As soon as you've finished checking out my cards (not before, you hear) get yourselves over there to have a look. There is heaps of great eye candy from the DT and a sale of handmade embellishments, like the buttons you are about to see, on a regular basis.

Now, I said "2" ways with spotty buttons and here is the first. I chose this Bo Bunny PP specifically to use with the spotty buttons but when I put them together the buttons were just to bright. The white spots were very well...ummm...white! What to do? What to do? Reach for the antiquing spritz and dauber of course! 

A teeny spray on the dauber, a rub on scrap paper to remove most of it again, making the dauber nearly dry, and then a rub on the buttons. Voila! 

The little orange doily, Purple Pumpkin again, also got a spritz of the antiquing spray.

Here's the inside of the card also. I always forget to include a photo of the inside but I'm going to try really hard to remember from now on.

OK, that was one way. The next is soooo easy.

Did you spot it?? Excuse the

Top of the class if you thought they were unaltered! Yep, spotty buttons in their "pure" form. Bright, bright, bright and so exactly JUST RIGHT for this fun card.

And look! All the way to the end of the post I hadn't forgotten to include the inside!

Just one more thing before you pop over to Purple Pumpkin.

I've been very remiss about giving you a list of supplies with my posts so from now on I'm going to list what I use at the end of each post and if I ever have time I'll try and edit previous posts as well.

OK, you can go and have a look at Purple Pumkin now.

Happy papercrafting!
