Button, Button Who's got the Button?

 Still struggling with the left hand not wanting to do what I want it to, typing is not easy either but on the up side I got a card made and with physio my fingers will be back working 100%. This blog post will be photo heavy typing not so much. The challenge at Shopping our Stash is Button, Button who has the button, now I know I must have 99+ buttons in my stash and I did find a few and picked the one that looked the best, didn't want to upstage the technique I used.

I tried a new technique called Double Stamping, not sure you can check it out here. This was a first attempt as although I have stencils I am not a stencil girl. The stencils are many eons old, the floral is the first one I bought and the bubbles one is a couple of years old. The button is probably 15 years old. I also stenciled the envelope.

A close up of the double stenciling. 

Here is  close up of the tiny heart shaped button that is the theme of the challenge.

Finished the inside with a bit of stenciling and a favourite sentiment.

I am adding this to:

Seize the Birthday ~~ Double Stamping #285

Color Hues ~~ #89 Sage & Pink

Thanks for stopping by today and don't forget to check out the Main Blog and see what buttons the rest of the design team has found in their stash.

Good for you! Since you have old stencils, you used your stamps. Very creative and it works for you. I am so glad that you at least tried the topping and were successful too. I love your card and glad that you joined in the fun at Seize the Birthday Challenge.

The double stencilling technique has worked so well for this card, just the right bit of interest on the flowers. Thanks for sharing at Color Hues. :)
