Christmas Card Challenge - July - St. Nick Spatter Buttons
I chose a St. Nick I found on-line which has a rich colored tunic, a snowy grey background and majestic stags. I color printed it in the size I needed. I trimmed it leaving a white border. I dug through my button collection to see what I had that matched either the tunic or the stags. I chose a grey card which matched well with the background in the picture. I spattered white pearl acrylic paint on the front of the card with a spatter tool then sent them aside to dry. Once dry, I wrapped a piece of white seam binding around the card front and knotted it on the right hand side. I repeated the colors in buttons - white, burgundy and grey. These are held in place with Zots.
