Midpost of Ch. #111- Use Buttons or Bows

Once again I'm back for Simply Create Too Challenge. Challenge #111 saw me using buttons, Color Bursts, a stencil, cutting machine and cutting dies, white Uniball pen, gold embroidery floss and Wink of Stella. Did I mention Nuvo Mother of Pearl Embellishment Mousse? I used it on the cardstock that the sentiment was cut from. Does this card qualify for the term "mixed media"? Is there enough media in it?  :)

I love the intensity of the colours obtained with the Color Bursts. I used Ultramarine Blue, Lemon Yellow and Pthalo Green. Yum!

I loved how this turned out because the card was inspired by Sarah Moerman's card (shown below). While Sarah's card used sprays over a stencil, I thought it would be just as cool to draw the circles through the stencil instead, using my white gel pen.

Join us at Simply Create Too Challenge and see what our fellow crafters have created. Bye for now.



  1. Love the gorgeous colours of the Colour Burst background Janelle. I haven't tried them - am trying to resist lol.

    1. They can be addictive, Linda. There's a lot of ways to use them - just trying to decide how is a problem. hahaha!


Thanks for your comment. I'm glad you've enjoyed my blog.
