Anything goes challenge

This weeks challenge on the
is "Anything Goes"
I used
"Garden Bear" (#1402)
We have the most wonderful neighbors,
and Di loves gardening.
She is very generous and fixes up a couple planters
for us to put on our front patio each summer.
I wanted to make a thank you card for her
and when I saw this image,
I knew I wanted to use it for her card.
This first card was done with a couple techniques.
I colored the image with water color crayons.
I made the sky and grass with Distress Inks.
I stamped the image on scrap and cut it out
to use as a mask as I inked the sky and grass areas. 
Masks were used for the clouds also.

The image on this card was colored with colored pencils
and blended with Gamsol.
I inked the sky, using masks for the clouds.
I tore a two different colors of core'dination card stock
and layered it for the grass.
I adhered the bear with foam tape.
I'm not sure which card I like better or which I'll be giving to Di.
Which do you like better?
I hope you've gotten some inspiration
and will participate in this weeks challenge!
Come again soon.
Until next time, Happy Crafting!

Very cute, both ways of creating the grass look nice.
