So, I was reading Chris Pellow's blog (go there!!) and saw all the wonderful things she is doing with Christi Friesen's Swellegants so I decided that I just couldn't LIVE unless I had some, too. So, being me, I ordered the entire set.
Naturally, I couldn't make the iron work. :( I tried and tried to make a rusty heart. :) So, with lots of help from Chris and a phone call to the wonderful Christi, I managed to get rust. The heart found its way into the garbage so I used an old faceted black glass button. This button now looks like Richard Lionheart could have buttoned his hauberk on while on his Crusade. :D Now that I have achieved rustiness, I will go experiment with all the other cool metals and patinas. The Swellegants are on Christi's site. www.cforiginals.com. Is this a great button, or what?
