Folk Art

This easel card was cut using Spellbinders Grand Squares (#3) and fabric for the background.  The Folk Art Stamps image is from Stamping Dragon Designs.  I copied and reversed the buttons to make a frame.

For the flowers, I used Glossy Accents on different sections of the bloom, depending on which flower
 I was working on to give it added dimension.   I thought about adding real buttons to the image, but decided to paper pierce the string portion of the image and hand stitched embroidery floss on top.  To make the easel stand, I mimicked the button image with real buttons and embroidery floss.  The sticker is from my stash.

There's still time to enter our Stamping Dragon Designs challenge going on now.  Also, be sure to see what the other members of the SDD team has dreamed up for you as well (blog addresses are under tab above).

Copics used: G19, G28, YG13    YR 61, YR65, YR68, YR09    YR21, YR61
