Inkspirations Challenge #76 - Button Birdies

Welcome to another challenge for Inkspirations!  This week you have these fun colours to play with:-

I decided to pull out a PTI set that hasn't seen a lot of love, even though it has cute line art images to use with buttons & lots of sentiments.  Here is my card:-

I have chosen to make a layered, all white card, with a few spots of colour.  Each layer of white has been popped up on dimensionals.

The buttons I used were not the same size as intended for the stamps, so I lightly traced around each button in pencil & then, using a marker to ink the stamp, added the details, one body part at a time!  I have stamped their wings on matching cardstock using white ink & cut them out.  Here are the little chickies:-

I created the band of colour at the bottom using a square punch & a strip of Sizzix adhesive sheet (this is great stuff) & added an organza ribbon.

Now make sure you head over to the Challenge blog & see what lovely creations the DT have to inspire you:-
