Buttons galore

This month's ATC swap on BF forum provided me with an opportunity to use this lovely antique buttons stamp by Stampington.

I stamped the images with DI worn lipstick and then distressed edges first with tattered rose and then with worn lipstick to give a bit more definition. A few 'real' buttons stuck here and there and the ATCs were done and I have lovely inky fingers.

These ATCs are also for these challenges:

Crafty creations 93: buttons
Gingerloft 5: buttons
C.R.A.F.T. 76: colour palette
Stamp magic 23: blog colours
Other lovelies thoughtful Thursday 32: I - for inks
All things unity 18: monochromatic
Kenny K's krafty girlz 18: anything but a square
Creative stamp friends 11: my favourite stamps - this is definitely one of them, but opportunities to use it are rare, so I was so pleased with this theme
Oldie but a goodie 5: distressing (I used a stamp over 6 months old)
Fab n funky 48: going round in circles
Raise the bar 43: let's see those curves
Lexi's creations 26: anything goes
