CCEE1219 -- Faux Embellies
Charlene challenged the CCEE Stampers to make their own brads and buttons this week. This is what I did. For my button (on my bow), I used a clear round pebble dot and place it on cardstock. I trimmed the excess away. I then used my Japanese style anywhere punch, and punched the two 'thread' holes. For my brads, I punched small circles the size of the brads I wanted to create. I glued those cardstock dots to my card. I then added Crystal Effects to create the clear dome. I allowed lots of time for it to dry before moving. I must say that they all came out pretty well......took a little time, but much cheaper than the bought type.
I used this beautiful stamp set from Floursihes for my image.
Now, skip on over to the CCEE Stampers Blog to check out the faux creations by the rest of the team. I think you are sure to be impressed.
