Happy Easter!! Top Tip Tuesday "Who Caught Our Eye" Guest Designer!


I have a special card creation to share with you all today! 
I was recently featured on the Top Tip Tuesday challenge blog for the "Who Caught Our Eye" spot! And I was asked to join them this week as a guest designer! They also asked me to join them again in April! It's such an honor to GD for them as I have been a player of their challenges for awhile now and the talented DT have such great tips to share every week!

Their theme this week is "Easter/Animals or Both!"


My tips for this week are:

Tip #1: Use an Opaque white pen or marker to add highlights or even a pattern to really make the image pop or stand out!
Tip #2: Always make sure to pick out your selected DP first before coloring your image. This will allow your card and color combo blend together nicely.

And the wonderful and generous sponsors this week are...





and




The super adorable image is from of course "Bugaboo Stamps" which is called: Easter Chick-Big Egg and can be found HERE! I used the cloud die from "MFT" with Tim Holtz distress ink to sponge the background...added a bit of grass with my Copics too.


All flowers are from "WOC" and the flourish die is from "MFT"!
