Dots, dashes, and stripes
I've recently become quite obsessed with attempting to find the fun doodlebug embellishments. Their website says they are now available worldwide. Well, I've only found a few items so far in Winnipeg. I really like the look of their buttons, particularly the polka dot ones and the sparkly ones. So, what do I do when I can't find the stuff I want? I try to recreate it myself. I finally got one of the singo uniball white gel pens. That thing is amazing. I vaguely recall seeing someone use it for this purpose in the past. I decided to take a stab at it. You can actually feel the dots on the button. While I had that out, I doodled other items on some buttons, wavy lines, stripes, that sort of thing. I just have to figure out how to make the sparkly buttons now. I have a few thoughts in mind, mainly gluepad + glitter+ fixative or mod podge+glitter. We'll see how that works out. For now, here's the card.
