Mar 10, 2009 Created Byhand Challenge

The challenge this week is to make art using the colours green and blue. For my entry I made these 3 ATCs with paper from a gift bag which I misted with water and crumpled then smoothed out and dried. I tore this paper into 2in. by 3 in. pieces and mounted them to blue cardstock. Then the fun began by selecting the blue and green buttons and sewing them on to the ATC. The final step was to mount this on green cardstock.

I love buttons---when I was a little girl I used to love playing with my grandmother's button jar.

Thank you for posting about your blog. I love the cards with the buttons. Having just sorted a zillion buttons I have been looking for ideas on how to use them. Your Idea will make great cards to send on special occasions.
