  • Top Tip Tuesday – Clean and Simple    {TIP: I used pop dots to give my badge a little dimension but with all of that red, I didn’t want them to be white and obvious. I used my R27 Copics and colored the outside of my pop dots red before I stuck them on – it all blends in perfectly! Mt tip is to color the edges of your pop dots when the card base is a dark bold color and white pop dots will stand out. It is a simple tip but it really makes a difference!}

Thanks for stopping by!! Have a great Day!
