I have had this little wallet tucked away for ages just waiting to be altered.... so i had a play.
The challenge at STAMPINSANITY this week is to use YELLOW and BUTTONS.
I stamped my favourite Grumpie from SMEARED INK onto white cotton and painted it with fabric paint. Once dry i coloured the background with ink... sew on 3 buttons and waited for it to completely dry. I then sew it on to the front of the wallet and covered the edges with a sequin strip that i glued down.
I shall also enter this in the 1st challenge at INK IT UP..... where the challenge is...ANYTHING GOES BUT MUST INCLUDE YELLOW.
thanks for looking... love lynx
