Button Up

Button Up - Craft Your Days Away has a double difficult (for me) challenge. We were to make a masculine card/project with buttons. At first I was stumped, then I remembered this nifty shirt stamp that I bought at a stamping show last year.

My DP is Prima. I didn't even know they made paper, then I found this stack in a box. I think they were for children, but I really like the muted colors.
I ran forest moss distress ink over the embossing folder before I ran it through the Cuttlebug. With the buttons the paper strip looks like that strip that runs down the front of a shirt.

My sentiment is Hot off the Press stamped with mememto black ink. I inked all of my paper images with the moss distress ink. I used to of SU punches for the sentiment, then 2 brads.
The shirt stamp is by Too Much Fun. I stamped it on card stock that has a 2 sides,one darker than the other. I then cut and folded the shirt. I used a couple of Copic's to shade it.
My favorite part of the shirt is the tiny buttons that I attached to it.

My 7 year old grandson just told me that this is my best card yet. He is my biggest fan. Big hugs, Tyler!
