Today the challenge from Think Monday Think ATC was to incorporate buttons.  I love buttons!

I started playing with tape too…I’ve been seeing these Japanese tapes and finally found a place on etsy to order them.  But I was impatient and took masking tape and painted, stamped..etc.  I’ll post some later this week.  In this ATC I used white duck tape–painted, sprayed, and markered. Placed strips of the tape on card and continued to ink, paint, etc.  The tape is visible in lighter strips across the top and on the sides. I then stitched the buttons on with mohair and added a dot of acrylic paint to secure.

    I am in love with these beautiful tapes. I can use it everywhere and on anything. I got my from Etsy, a store called “littlehappythings1”. They are new, but their price is reasonable and the owner is very sweet to deal with. If anyone is interested, you can check here:
