Top Tip Tuesday

So then to my creation...

I Love Karen's doodle stamps and found myself colouring this cute little guy for my card, yes I said card.... I was not going to do an easel box as time has not been on my side for weeks but... they are fun to make and this is the first one I have made but you will see more it was so easy and using the Tutorial from Top Tip Tuesday by Katrina.


Tip 1, You can resize anything you like this is a mini version of the TTT tutorial measurements....
I have coloured the image with distress inks and added glossy accents to the balloons and also stuck the buttons on with it. I also used a TH distress tool on all the edges.
Tip 2 - Don't forget you can also decorate the inside, you can make your own sentiments to add a little handmade by you.

I am also entering a few challenges today
