Just Us Girls #351 - Trend Week

Happy Saturday!  It's been super hot and humid here this week.  Not a fan of humidity!
We have a new challenge over at Just Us Girls.  It's Trend Week and Vicki chose sponging.  One of my favorite things to do!
I just received a box full of the new MFT products yesterday and thought I color up the little bear with copics.  I gave him some texture by putting some copic various ink on a washcloth and dabbing it on him. (I remember seeing this done when I went for my copic certification and thinking it was so cool!)  I added some shimmer on the balloon and box.  The sponging came in on the background.  I taped off the perimeter of the cardstock and sponged distress inks on it.  Then I splattered it with water.  The sentiment was stamped in black ink and embossed.  The bear was added with fun foam and I also added some sequins.
I'm also entering this in the 30 Day Coloring Challenge.  I've colored a couple of other didn't turn out good and the other I haven't finished.  I'll be posting it later.

I am so with you on the humidity deal, Lisa! That wonderful water splattered bg is fantastically cool and refreshing though:)! The bear is totally sweet with his balloon, and cool idea texturing with the washcloth!
