Crafty Calendar Challenge - Buttons and/or Bows

Wow, March has come and gone and I'm now a year older!  Time does fly when you are having fun.  And, I sure did have fun creating my latest project for the Crafty Calendar Challenge.  For this challenge you are to add a button and/or a bow.  I didn't want to cover up too much of my pretty image, so I opted to add a double bow, to one side of the sentiment, using white twine.  Our sponsor this month is A Day for Daisies Digital Stamps.  For all the challenge details and to share your project at the Crafty Calendar Challenge, just click HERE.

As you may know, I love flowers.  When I saw this Bachelor Buttons image from A Day for Daisies, I fell in love with it's simplicity.  I started by printing my image off using my inkjet printer.  I always let my ink dry overnight to be sure it is good and dry before I start coloring my image.  It's a sure way of not having the ink run when coloring.  I'm really pleased with the way this turned out.

Stamp Sets:  Bachlor Buttons in a Mason Jar (A Day for Daisies Digital); Ink:  VersaMark; Cardstock:  Dapper Denim (Stampin' Up!), Mixed Media Paper (Strathmore); Dies:  Double-ended Flag Stacklets Dies (Taylored Expressions), Stitched Rectagle Stacklets (Taylored Expressions); Other:  Prismacolor Colored Pencils, Gamsol, Pewter Embossing Powder, Whisper White Baker's Twine
