tattoo me up, buttercup! 2

Hi there! yep, two blog posts in one day, aren’t you lucky? I’m trying to get as much in as possible before I’m away from my craft area for a couple of days later in the week, and there are so many images that have been calling to me to play with them!

today’s card is made using ‘tattoo baby‘ from Karleigh Sue and is a card I made to utilise some odds and ends of some cardstock and papers.


I wanted to use quite a bold image to fit in with the striking paper, (both sides of it are used on this card) and tattoo baby was the perfect girl for the job! I loved colouring in all her tattoos and watching her come to life under my copics!

I kept the card layout fairly simple, as with the intense papers, and with the image having lots going on, the simpler the layout the better, so as not to detract from the elements I wanted to pick out!
