Cute as a Button!


I hope you all enjoyed a lovely Easter weekend and are coming out of a chocolate coma!!  LOL

I have this sweet All Dressed Up image for you today - isn't he just the cutest!!  It was a freebie a while back and have been meaning to print it out and colour him up for ages ... so I finally did!  I used copics and a new (to me) technique to add texture.  I used X's, starting with the darkest colour and going lighter to add my shadows etc.  A sweep of the lighter colour to blend it slightly, then I dabbed a piece of cheesecloth with some 0 Blending solution and pressed it very lightly over the image for some added texture.  I am really pleased with the finished result - what do you think?

The rest of the card is a fairly simple layout using up paper scraps from my scrap bin - need to work through a big pile!!  The ribbon and buttons are from my stash.

I'm going to enter this card into the following challenges:-

Papertake Weekly - Anything Goes
Craft your Passion Challenges - Always Anything Goes
All Dressed Up Challenge - Always Anything Goes (Must use ADU image)
Cute Card Thursday - Buttons & Bows
Crafting for all Seasons - Animal Magic

Once again, thanks for taking the time to stop by and see me.  Have a wonderful crafty day ... until next time!
