Distress Inks

Thanks Hula Girl

Isn’t this image adorable! Britta sent her to me and I just love her! I had a tough day dropping my son off at Kindergarden today so I came home and tried to get in a zen place..  Hula Anya by the Greeting Farm is so cute and adorable, it made me smile when I colored her. And after the morning I was having, I didn’t think it was possible to smile… I am in love with her blue dress, aren’t you?  She is colored with the Faber Castell Art Grip pencils. Isn’t that red gorgeous? It’s from Jenni Bowlin, my favorite ink of all time! I’ve got all of her colors, including the ones from the new release. I just received this particular ink in my recent Simon Says Stamp order (one of many I am embarrassed to say, I just can’t get enough of them)… It is a gorgeous red! Deep and pretty. Hope that isn’t one of the ones they are discontinuing…

I made this card for two challenges. The new (and fabulous might I add) Young Crafters Unite challenge (color a stamped image) and the Lily Pad’s sketch challenge, sponsored by the Greeting Farm.

Thank you for stopping by!!!!!
