Another look at this month's buttons

There are some really great chipboard buttons in this month's kit... Elizabeth showed you one way to use them, Lynda another, and now it's my turn! I wanted to to offer you a different way of using them, and when I was looking at my buttons, all of a sudden... I kid you not... one of them yelled " EARRINGS!" to me! ;) Added a little Maya Road chipboard from the kit, and WAH LAH!

I painted the "cloverleaf" button with a very shiny dimensional paint, in a circle pattern around each hole. Then I added little pink jewels with glossy accents. The heart is Maya Road chipboard, also from the kit. Just FYI, I also painted the back.

What would earrings be without a companion necklace? The pendant started out as the Maya Road "tag" on the ticket mini from the kit. AH HA! Wondered what you would do with that, didn't you? ;) I painted it with acrylic paint to match the heart dangles of the earrings, the back too, and then covered it with glossy accents. While the glossy accents was wet, I placed another MR heart (already painted) where I wanted it, and added a jewel.



I had alot of fun making this set, and am going to give it to my sister as a gift for her twin daughters' baptism.
