I love nasturtiams with their bright and cheery flowers and thier beautiful saucer size round leaves. They say spring to me. I used a piece of green sweet pear from Bo Bunny which I used a zigzig stitch around the edges in white and a straight stitch around the dotted piece. The small image is a psx and the large is rubber stampede. I watercolored them and stamped extras. Using my favorite technique paper piecing I cut out and popped up some of the flowers,leaves and buds on both of the images to create some dimension. I also cut some out to mount on the sentiment. I used some generic punches for the layers of the sentiment. My wonderful button box yielded three perfect buttons to finish it off with.
