I had some left over images of Minky Girl from this post, so I thought I'd put them to good use for this weeks challenge.  The background is created using the Watercolor Distress Technique (AKA Wrinkle Free Distress) using Ranger DI ink Broken China, Bard Door Red, and Bundled Sage, all edges are sponged with Brushed Corduroy.  I randomly stamps some Hexagon images in Ranger Black Archival to fill some of the open space, then added the ripped/sponged booknote. Minky is stamped twice and colored with Ranger Distress Inks.  I cut out the second stamped image and popped it up over the first, sandwiching in Bee Wings that were stamped and cut from Acetate.
