Beatrice Buttons by Sherri Baldy Stamps

Button, button, who's got the button?  Anyone remember that?  This saying came right to my mind when I saw this adorable image, Beatrice Buttons, from Sherri Baldy Stamps at Scrapbook Stamp Society! So head on over and check out the fabulous work of all the talented artists there.  I promise you won't be disappointed with what whimsical and fantastically fantasy images you'll find!  There's something for everyone!

If you've read much of my blog, you'll know that sewing was my introduction into the crafting world and I loved to use buttons.  Blouses were always my favorite thing to make because I got to pick out buttons and make buttonholes!  Silly, it may sound, but it's the truth.  In fact, my favorite blouse was a sapphire blue silk blouse that had a mock turtleneck and faux scarf and had buttons halfway down the back of the blouse.  Loved that blouse and I'm not sure if it was because of the color or the buttons!

Isn't Miss Beatrice a beauty?

I colored her with copics and used some Stickles around her dress and strap around her headband.  I cut her out using my nestabilities and made the flowers with my Spellbinders Bitty Blooms die.  The branches are a Martha Stewart punchy and the gems from my stash, and the papers are from K&Company and DCWV.

Isn't her face just the cutest little thing?

Here's a couple of peeks into the inside.

I tried to do the inside a little different, but it's not as creative as I'd have liked.  Still gotta work on that!

I hope you enjoy this cutie pie as much as I enjoyed working on her.  All these buttons are making me want to pull out my sewing machine and sew!  Hope everyone has a great day!
