 Ok - so I'm a little on the edge lately!  I REALLY like Dilly Bean images!  They just set my creativity spinning!  Someone recently made the comment my choice of images was "creepy".  LOL!  So, Bite Me!
(Ooooooooohhhh - that made me think of another idea!)  I have always liked Raggedy Anns - could be the red hair.  But being able to attach real buttons as eyes seemed a genuine bonus!
So, here's the scoop:  the image was printed and colored with Copics (see Copics choices at the end of post).  Blue buttons were threaded with black waxed linen so that once in place the wax holds the thread in a position that makes it look like an upper lid to me. Corners of the image panel were clipped with a "Ticket Stub" punch,  border was colored and mounted on foam tape around the image.  Edges of the image and the sentiment panels were inked with Distress Inks.  A simple blue bow was added for balance.

 You can see the depth of the buttons and the raised border in this close-up.
