Buttons and Bows at MPS

I'm a wee bit late posting my personal post for the Michelle Perket Studio challenge..... Oopsie! This week it's Buttons & Bows!

Our challenge is sponsored by Michelle Perkett Studio Esty store, and the randomly drawn winner will be awarded one digital image of their choice!

My creation here uses the image: Love Fairy

Ingredients: Cardstock - Cre8tiv; Stardust Pens - Sakura; Rhinestones - Kaisercraft, Mobile Phone Bling; Irridescent Glitter Glu - Papermania; White Gold Organza Ribbon; Vintage Gold Button.
I coloured the image with Stardust pens, and added Glitter Glue to her wings.... she really shimmers!I matted the image on red and added pink rhinestones to the corners.  I added a ribbon to the top corner of the next matt (white) and fixed the image on top.  I then added another ribbon to the bottom right corner. I had already tied a bow into this piece. I stitched a button on top of the bow - a really sweet button too... it is in two pieces - the centre cream flower has the shank, and the gold outer layer, which has embossed leaves, slips over the shank.... I finally topped the Love Fairy with a rhinestone heart to her crown...

We'd love to see your creation with one of Michelle's gorgeous images, and Buttons and Bows! If you don’t have any of Michelle’s images check out Michelle’s Etsy store or you can look in the group at Paper Craft Planet and look for a freebie! Do come along to the MPS Challenge blog and see the awesome creations from the design team, and join in our challenge!  Oh, Michelle will also be announcing some new DT members soon! We can't wait to see who is going to join the rest of us Mermaids.... thanks for peepin'!
