Adding extra detail to plain embellishments - part 1

I am a bit of an embellishment freak and I just love jazzing up plain embellishments

Using a paint marker i drew round the groove in the button

I stuck the button onto a prima daisy flower using glossy accents

Then i took 2 pieces of ribbon and tied them together

I pushed 2 pins through the ribbon knot

And stuck the ribbon and pins onto the centre of the button with glossy accents

I took a chipboard heart and lighty inked the edges using a Cats Eye Fluid Chalk Orchid - Pastel

I then stuck the button embellishment onto the chipboard heart

I used my heart embellishment on this LO

That's lovely and you make it look so easy. I'll give it a try ~ although I'm a bit worried about having sharp pins in my album!
