The background is colored with Tim Holtz distress ink Vintage Photo


Isn't he cute? When I saw the image, it reminded me of when we were young and used to dress up as our parents!  The clothes fit him well, but it just brought that to memory!

I colored the image to look "aged" as if this is an old picture of this little man.  I hope you like him!

I think it could be used for a Father's Day card or for that special little man in your life!
