Rachael ...altering chipboard and buttons

The gorgeous heart button in the Limited Edition kit was perfect for altering, here is what I did....

1. Sponge two coats of guesso onto the button, allow each layer to dry thoroughly.
2. Apply some vintage photo distress ink on top.
3. Add a layer of green Glimmer Glaze and leave it to dry.

I snipped off the back of the button, removed the pearl center of the Prima flower and replaced it with the button.

Give this technique a try!

Great technique Rachael,I have loads of those buttons, but prefer what you have done with them, just need to get some glimmer glaze, or would something else work!!!!
