Buttons and Paper Artsy

The theme for the current Wednesday Stamper is BUTTONS.

I thought I would incorporate this with one of the Paper Artsy Minis stamps.

I used lots of distress inks, gold spray, mica powders and water. Layer upon layer. This created the sheen that I have had to show in the smaller pic as the light here is fading fast (apologies for the terrible photos tonight but the sun (what little we've had today) is setting quickly.




Heres the stamp I used.
