Coloring Christmas Buttons

Coloring Christmas Buttons

The little circle that popped out when I did a quick cut of the die in this video was what got me started thinking about making little buttons – the coloring of the image itself can be really basic, no need to stress over blending or anything. The magic is in the shadows that make it dimensional! Watch the video below or click HERE to see it in HD on YouTube.

I’m gonna be making a lot of buttons now…. LOL.
