FTTC#254 - Button it Up!

Play along with the Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge each week for a chance to win prizes and or gift certificates. You can find all the details on the Flourishes Blog.

I hope that everyone is back in the swing of regular life and stamping, now that the busy holidays are over. I'm hosting the Timeless Tuesday Challenge for this week. Today the challenge is all about the weather... when it's cold out side, you have to button up! I think we all have been doing way too much of that lately, even here in the South! for Timeless Tuesday Challenge this week I'd like you to use at least one button embellishment, along with a winter themed card. 

Check out what the DT created for you today!

Where's my button....   it's small but it is there under the bow! I had fun airbrushing with the Snow Scenes set, now retired. I fit my scene in to the Perfectly Pierced Window Die.

You can see in the picture below that I traced the inside of the Perfectly Pierced Window Die then I stamped my elements and did my airbrushing. I cut it out last. 
 I used Eclipse Tape to mask off snow drifts and gently airbrushed with Copic W4, continually moving my torn paper to look like rolling hills. I used a circle cut out to mask the moon. After I and cut out the scene, I used the die to cut a black layer for it. I then hand cut a white layer...see the first picture.

The sentiment was also cut out with a smaller die included in the Perfectly Pierced Window Die set. The sentiment seems perfect for all this crazy cold weather of late and is from the Snow Wonderful Set.
