Button It Up

Hi peeps. It was an honour to be asked to be a guest DT for Through the Purple Haze again and this new challenge is about using those buttons in your stash. I was given a digi from Digi Stamps 4 Joy to create with called "Game Zone" from the boys section. Hence my tag was aimed at a young lad - namely my Grandson who will have his birthday in July.
Using papers from a stack that I've had forever, I covered a bought tag and using small dies from Tattered lace cut the scalloped edges and the "buttons" from scraps in my box. the little dots are drawn in by hand to look like buttons.  The image coloured with Graphit pens and cut out with a circle die. A real button has the number 7 sealed in with glossy accents after attaching it over the tag cord. If you're reading this and want to compete for prizes from either DS4J  or Lucy Sunshine then get on over to Through the Purple Haze with your buttons.
Thank you to the team members over at TTPH for putting up with me this month, it's been a pleasure creating with you.
