Coloured buttons

Yesterday's post showed the lovely wooden buttons from button it. One of the ideas featured on their stall was how to colour the buttons using felt tips, gel pens or paint. Well here are my first attempts using some Gelly Roll pens brought at the NEC.

I'm loving the glaze white pen, it takes a little time to dry but has a great effect, so the snowmen and lighthouse are definite favourites so far.

I also had a little go with the mesh ribbon to make a little flower... It's fixed in the middle using a crystal brad. When I get a little child free time I'm looking forward to trying a few more designs.
I guess my blogs are now like buses...you wait for ages then several come at once! Happy crafting folks. x
