Today's card is another fun extra-shabby card, that all started when I was looking for a way to incorporate some cute little carnations I made with my Carnations Creations dies. Here's how it all came together in the end...
Using the two smallest flowers in the die set to make these little carnations, I just varied the number of layers used on each flower, then placed one of them on top of a textured red and white Prima flower. Before assembling the carnations, I dry-brushed all the edges of the pieces with white acrylic paint to accentuate the layers...
There's a bit of dry-brushing on the leaves, too...just to shabby them up a bit...
In the upper corner, I took the twine used to thread the button and wrapped it around the corner of the background papers...it stays put after a drop or two of clear glue behind the background paper. :)
