A Truly Scrumptious Challenge

I came across this challenge site called Truly Scrumptious through Sue's blog.  So far they have had sketch challenges, which I love.  Not only that, but they wanted to see some homemade buttons.  I just received my Moose Friends set from Clear Dollar Stamps, so I wanted to play with it.  

I started off by cutting a circle with my circle cutters, and stamped the moose and moose baby ont he circle.  I then masked them, and made my clouds using a punched circle and a sponge.  I also sponged Kiwi Kiss at the bottom for the grass and then made blades of grass with my copic markers.  Both of the moose are popped up with Stampin' Dimensionals, and the bigger moose is popped up even more to make him seem closer :D  Obviously I have a good time popping things up.  Now for making those buttons.  I had some polyshrink sitting around that I haven't touched for ages.  I pulled it out and used my circle cutters and then punched holes in them.  The green button was made with Old Olive Craft ink, and the brown button was made with Close to Cocoa Craft ink.  Not having any Pacific Point Craft ink, I decided to try the Dye ink.  you can see how it turned out. . .not too bad.  All the buttons were covered with Clear Embossing Powder before shrinking them to them that shiny look.  I don't think they turned out too bad.
