WOYWW #205

Yesterday was my Stamp Addicts meeting. Everyone was there and had great cards to share and great ideas. The host showed us a marvelous technique using buttons, embossing powder, embossing ink, and a heat gun, oh and stamps.

Lots of stuff here.

These are the buttons that I embellished.  I came home from the meeting and started to embellish more. I wanted to try using the Verdigris by Antiquities. That is the greensish part on the buttons. We used sever different stamps on the buttons to give it some texture.

This is an old key I had started embellishing after watching a yt don't remember now who it was.

Thanks to the Stamp Addicts May host for showing this technique.
