DOES MY NEW HAT MAKE ME LOOK FAT? Hmmph Silly Question.....lol

Hi.   This is my Second Guest Design piece for Happy Daze this month and am following Mr Carrot on his travels around the coastline.  The current theme this month at Happy Daze is ''I do like to be beside the Seaside''!

This time I smeared a Big and Juicy Felt Pad on my craft mat and squirted it with water, then laid my photocard over it and pressed lightly down.......Great effect don't you think.......... while this was drying stamped out this Oh so Vain Girl and Mr Carrot plus his new Hat then coloured them with watercolour paints.

Glued it down onto one of my black journal pages after raising it all with foam squares. So a really nice easy project but I think it looks quite effective...........Mr Carrot is so cheeky you never know what he will get up to or say next do you..................but methinks he will be banned from the seaside don't you........lol

Products used: Big and Juicy (Vibrant Primary), Black Stickles and the Ultimate Glu.
Stamps by:      Lost Coast Designs, Stampotique and Scrolls Work.
All available at Happy Daze.
