Eat, sleep, fish

I'm posting late today I was out shoveling snow! I love snow, shoveling not so much. This is the last of the challenges I'm doing on stamp tv and it was to add a button to a bow. My "bow" is made with twine but it still was a bow, lol! My Dad brought over some buttons he had taken off of old shirts so I got "new" buttons, sweet. After I added the button I also had to tape it down. Because its so large and my ribbon is narrow it flopped, looked hideous actually! I put a dimensional square on each side of the button to stabilize it, looks much better. I used the set from Gina K which has a lovely lake trout and even my husband said I coloured it great. Now that's a compliment. I've also entered this into Paper Sundaes, which is to use something new, Totally Stampalicious which is to recycle something (the button) and Tip Top Tuesday which is to embellish.

  2. This wonderfully coloured fish turned into quite a card. You did a marvellous job on it Dawn. Aside from the fish, I love how you did the border and the button string. Great job!
