I die cut the sentiments first on both cardstock. Then I stamped the grumplings images with Versa Fine ink and coloured them with my Faber Castell watercolour pencils. I don't use any water or blender liquids at all. I prefer it this way. Next, I watercoloured the words with distress inks. I used 4 recent colours and did not exactly planned where to put the colours. It was random and fun! After all colouring was completed, I adhered everything together on the card bases.
Here are the cards.
I'm entering both cards in the Taylored Expressions Share Joy Challenge #12 and also Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge: Christmas.
