Sugar babes Blog Hop!

We are having another little friendly blog hop.
The Sugar babes and myself have got together to showcase the new Kathy Hare images, released by Sugar Nellie, they are available now at Funky Kits.
I fell in love with them all the moment I saw them. It was really difficult to choose which image to use, but with a little help, I decided on this one. LITTLE BEAR.
I have been wanting to have a play with some distressing inks, so went for a quick make!!!!!! I stamped the images using Faded Jeans Distress Ink.
I then used a water colour brush and just dragged out the colour. I also went back when it had dried and added a little darker tones, this has given the image some texture I think!
Here is a tag and sentiment all using Stampin' Up Stuff! The ribbons were from my stash.
And the finished card..........

I used a nestie to cut out the image and water coloured some very faint hills in the background.

I created the background using a Stampin' Up stamp and the Faded Jeans ink, over the top I used some white ink. It was then finished off with inked up edges.
I hope you like, It is very different for me.......... NO PROMARKERS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
have a lovely day, make sure you visit the rest of the Sugar babes, their creations are sure to be gorgeous.
I have scheduled this post so am now off to bed.
