Bless the Bear Hugs

A bit of watercoloring with Distress Oxide Inks, some stamping with Hero Arts and Honey Bee Stamps, a bit of die-cutting with Neat & Tangled and some action-wobbling make up this card that I think is so soft and sweet. I'm playing along in A Blog Named Hero's May Challenge: Watercoloring featuring Honey Bee Stamps.

I started by inking with a sponge distress oxide inks in Worn Lipstick and Fossilized Amber onto the edges of a watercolor panel and then added various amounts of water to soften the edges. I then stamped the greeting from Honey Bee's Bless Your Heart Stamp Set with brown ink, as well as the cute bear from Hero Art's Baby Animals Stamp Set. The watercolor panel was adhered onto a kraft cardbase that had been die cut with Neat & Tangled Tiny Prints Die Cuts and then I adhered the fussy cut bear with some wire to make it wobble.

Here's the sweet little guy with some wobbly action!
