Tiddlyinks Blog Hop

Hi Bloggers

A few months ago the lovely Christy of Tiddlyinks fame asked me and some other ladies if we would like to do a blog hop featuring some of her fantastic images. After a lot of thought ......... like 1.1seconds I said YES PLEASE and then when the hop was all sorted out my laptop and printer decided to have a falling out and I wasn't sure if I could get my image printed in time but my very clever daughter came to the rescue and made the printer & laptop be friends again.

So here is my finished card using the super cute
digital stamp

Isn't he just fab :)
I coloured him with Pro Markers, listed the colours used below, and added glossy accents to his 'Cool Dude' glasses. I cut out his hair & glasses, sandcastle & flag from a second image I had coloured and layered them on top of my main image using 1mm thick foam pads. The papers I used are a mixture of DCWV Printed Craft Stack & All About Boys Stack along with some plain coloured card from my stash. I cut the large crab & jellyfish from the backing paper and mounted them with foam pads to give more dimension, and the sentiments are from an old set I have and have no idea of the brand sorry

If you head back to the main blog here you can carry on hopping to the other blogs in the hop and see more great makes using fab Tiddlyinks images

I want to thank Christy for asking me to take part in the hop and giving me the chance to work with one of her wonderful digital images again

Happy Crafting
