Not your average buttons x

Hiya Ladies x Just thought I would share with you some chipboard buttons that I altered in a variety of ways x  I used alcohol inks , utee, inks , german glass , embossing powder , glitter and also some string and raffia too x
I am entering this into By the cute and girly where the theme this month is buttons , it is my second entry(see my first one here ) as I am on a bit of a button craze this week x  have  a peep BEFORE , some chipboard buttons and whats not in this shot 2 more 1/2" plain white buttons x
 and here are my creation , I just love mised media and altering anything and everything x the square button I used the german glass , ink , and embossing powder too
the small flower is stamped has stamped script and utee
the large round one is my favourite as it is very steampunk looking lots of ink , embossing powder ,german glass , metal bits and pieces and lots of utee too , yummy x
the 2 small buttons are simply inked up with alcohol inks and etc x some ribbon string and twine and I was done x

thanks for looking ladies and if any of you would like to see a tutorial on the techniques used , just leave a comment below and I will get working on a youtube video ;) oh and please stop by By the cute and girly and look at all the amazing entries and sure why not enter something yourself ?thanks for stopping by and until later , happy crafting
