Sending some love and ready for the water!

Hi everyone!  I just have two quick cards to share with you :)

This first card is using an image called Sending You Love 2  from Prairie Fairy which I just recently won from the last Creative Card Crew challenge.  This bunny is just so sweet! Perfect digi to watercolor, too! I'm really starting to love this medium :)

This card is for a few challenges:
  1. Stamp with Fun - Sketch
  2. Caardvarks - Baby Card
  3. Doodle Palace - Funny Animals
  4. Papertake Weekly - Cutie Pie
  5. Tuesday Morning Sketches - Soft hues, flowers and ribbon - I hope my lace qualifies!
  6. ABC Challenge - Sparkle
  7. Creative Belli - Die Cuts
  8. Scrappy Frogs - Pick 3 - I have a digi image, lace, and die cuts!
Image: Prairie Fairy Sending You Love 2; Medium: Distress Inks; Paper: Memory Box; Accessories/tools: Cuttlebug, Nestabilities, paper piercer, Prima flowers, stickles, lace

This second card is to showcase a stamp that Deb at Deb's Creations carries.  This cute stamp is from Wags 'n Whiskers called Water Baby.  I don't know why, but this little girl looks really sassy to me! Must be the look she's giving, lol.  I also colored this card using my Distress Reinkers!

This card is for a few challenges:
  1. CPS - Sketch 162
  2. Totally Gorjuss - Texture
  3. Lots to Do - Embossing
  4. The Corrosive Challenge - Texture
  5. The Pink Elephant - 1 image, 2 dies, and 3 favorite embellishments - My 3 favorite embellishments are flowers, buttons, and ribbons!
  6. Simon Says Challenge - Let's Go to the Movies + dry embossing - My movie inspiration: Stitch the Movie! Doesn't this little girl remind you of the little girl from Stitch?
  7. Little Red Wagon - Dry Embossing
  8. Cupcake Craft - Childhood Memories - Memories of the beach at summertime!
Stamp: Wags and Whiskers Water Baby; Medium: Distress Inks; Paper: I think it's SU!; Accessories/tools: Cuttlebug, Nestabilities, embossing folder, paper piercer, Prima flowers, ribbon, buttons

Oh my gosh Ann these are adorable, both of them! Too cute. So you watercolor these with distress inks. Wow, I am gonna have to try that! Looks awesome! Are they alcohol based? They must be or the printer ink would run.

Love them!
