Tuesday Alchemy Challenge Button, Button, Whose got a button?

Hello to everyone out there in craft land, I am having a super Tuesday, The sun is actually shining (I kid you not there is Sun today in my part of England!!) I got to see my brand new little Nephew last night who is just gorgeous and there is only 3 days left of the week now before my boys will be off school for 6 weeks and we can start our holiday madness :D So this weeks Challenge at Tuesday Alchemy is to make any crafty project you like as long as it's got buttons, super easy right? If you need some inspiration please have a look at what the design team have made this week http://tuesdayalchemy.blogspot.co.uk/
I have made some Button flowers this week and decorated a vase to put them in. The vase is a glass one from Ikea that I covered with alcohol inks then coloured a rose in from Robyn's fetish who are our sponsors for this week and are giving away 5 digi stamps from their store! then to finish it off I added a ribbon and sticky brad. The inside has been filled with material to hide the flower stems and the flowers were made with buttons, paper blooms, floristy wire and raffia. I have made a video showing this piece with a tutorial on how to make the flowers. I hope you have enjoyed what I've made for you this week now please head over to the challenge blog to see the other wonderful creations and show us what you have come up with this week!! Big Crafty Hugs Shell xx
