Coraline Guest Designer Entry

This month's guest designer contest for My Favorite Things was to use buttons on your project. I had a movie theatre gift card to give and kept thinking about the movie Coraline, where some of the characters have black buttons for eyes. So I ran with it. I stamped Isabelle - to become my other mother from Coraline, masked her, and selectively inked the chair and carpet from Let's Hear it for the Boys. I also paper pieced the chair. I gave the other mother some red lipstick and a little mole and cut a title with my quickutz typist font. I used a tutorial by Jessie Rone to make the gift card holder - it was super quick to put together!

Hope you had a good weekend! We had a quiet one - visiting some family and I took my Mom to the airport yesterday (miss you already Mom!). Have a great week!

Brilliant! I like the cute/creepy vibe of the button eyes!
