Think Ink Challenge #20

The current Think Ink Challenge is a Recipe Challenge: 3 buttons (oh, that was painful for me!), 2 ribbons, and 1 circle. You have until Monday, May 24th to enter for a chance to win a grab bag of AI stamps! Complete details are HERE.

I really struggled with this and worked on it for about 3 days. I think I need more practice working with buttons. You know what that means? Yep, I need to shop for some buttons. You always shop first and then figure out if you know how to use it later, right?

I used a Nestie to cut out my circle and left the Nestie on the circle while I airbrushed some green along the bottom left and purple along the top right. I stamped the butterflies and colored them with Copics. I used 2 different punches to make my little button flower garden. For the green background layer, I used some of the sentiment stamps from the set and stamped them randomly. Then I sponged the edges of that layer. I love text in the background!
