Just Us Girls

It's time for another fun and fabulous JUST US GIRLS challenge!  This week is trend week and what a great trendy challenge we have going on - Watercoloring! Super fun and easy and as a stamper you do not need special paints and stuff.  I took the Watercoloring for Cardmakers class and it was super fun and informative. 

Here is what I came up with:

 So I created the background watercolor style from Tim Hotlz who at the time of the class was a "Guest" and it was awesome.  He has since shared this technique on his blog HERE.

I then used a cute Stampin Up stamp for my main image and colored him using distress inks and water and added Ranger Stickles (not pictured below) to his ears for the "fluff".

My supplies:
