How to Build-A-Bear Using Kitchen Sink Stamps and Distress Inks!

 Hello there!

Hope your new year is off to a great start!  I'm finally getting over a cough I've had since Thanksgiving!  I got this "Teddy Bear Wishes"set from the Kitchen Sink booth at Simon Says Create and finally have had a chance to use it.  It was perfect to pair with my handful of Distress Ink browns, including the newest (and last) one Scorched Timber!  

The set is so easy to use and position with loads of helpful instructions and photos.  I chose to do Step 2 before Step 1 in this case because I think it's hard to do the eyes first.  Maybe not.  Also, this style of layering stamp lends itself to starting with the darkest color.  It really does work great!

The supplies are linked below (AFIL-thank you so much for your support (at no additional cost to you I may get a small commission.)
