Woodware Challenge - Buttons

Here is my take on this weeks Woodware challenge....a button picture.

I've used an old stamp and although it has now been retired there are still
some in stock at Woodware.
The stamp code is JGCL517 Hippy Chick.

I made the buttons a while ago and have been waiting for a project
to come along so I could use them.

The buttons are stamped onto different sized punched circles of white shrink plastic and coloured with crayons and powdered chalk. Then heated to shrink.

I have drawn on a piece of 'Fashion Fabric Square' from Woodware. These are 6" x 6" fabric squares of a course weave in a natural finish code number MR14819.
The flower stems are drawn with a green Identi pen and a yellow one for the petals.
Sew the buttons on with embroidery thread and I've added some mini flower buttons too.

Those of you who like sewing might like to embroider the stems and leaves instead.

Really pretty design. Clever idea to put on fabric and then into a frame.
