Color Challenge #33

Oh this was a very tricky one for me! Really took me out of my comfort zone. I thought it might be easier to water color and I had this 'olde world' vision in my head, but when I tried to add buttons it ended up turning out really cutesy, so I don't know if I am entirely happy with this one, but, here it is;
I used the For Father stamp set, from the new Summer Mini, and I used blenders and all of the inks to color. I had a couple of buttons in the right colors, but I needed a bigger one, so I covered one with pumpkin dsp from the Summer Picnic range, then I just punched circles from different color card stock to fill in the gaps. I also added some crystal effects to the apples to make them really shine, but you cant see it from the picture.

I see that you went all out on this one! I like the stamp and the circles w/the buttons, oh and the paper tearing is very nice.
