Great Impressions June Challenge

June? Seriously?
And here we are with a new monthly challenge at Great Impressions.

Our challenge this month is 'Anything Goes'.

Peerless watercolors were used for the background. The bear and flowers were colored with Copic markers. The bear was then smooshed with a piece a towel with some colorless blender, for a raggedy effect. He was adhered to the card front with dimensional foam. Flowers were stamped a second time, colored, fussy cut, and adhered directly over the stamped image.

Hope you like this little guy!
Now....create something fun, and link up to our Anything Goes challenge!
We hope you will use your Great Impressions Stamps!!!

If you do use GI stamps be sure to link up to the customer gallery HERE.
