Going Potty !!!

Spring is here and every ones gone potty out doing there gardens first sign of a bit of sunshine
The image I have used here is by Jolanda at the Cards etc shop its really cute and useful for lots of different occasions. I coloured the potty little fella with copic markers and then distressed the edges with my new Distrezz-t-all machine added a little Tim Holtz distress ink to the edges and coated the whole image with Tim Holtz Rock Candy Distress crackle paint, which doesn't show up well in the photo.
The DP is K& Company Life's Journey
Flowers & leaves from my eBay
Sentiment stamp is from SU
I recycled the bit of string I found and stapled it on with Tim Holtz mini attacher
The Die cut shape is from my shop Die cut Dreams
I have entered this into the following challenges;
Flutter By Wednesday challenge wings
Bizzy Becs Challenge flowers & wings
Creative Cottage challenge things with wings
Ginger Snap challenge found objects mines the string
Stampavie Challenge butterflies
