A little birdie told me ...

Hello everyone!
Welcome to Fridays with Steph. I am positively in Crafter's Companion heaven these past 2 weeks - last week was the new release for a new Humphrey Collection of stamps and this week there is a new SWALK collection of stamps! Just a cuteness overdose I tell ya!
This set was colored with Spectrum Noir pens (hair and bird: all 4 CT colors + GB5; apron, bow and shoe: PP3,PP4, PP5; green dress: DG2, DG3, DG4; skin: FS2, FS3, PP1). Don't afraid to go outside the color family to get the colors you want - I did that with the hair so I could get a great contrast and to match my Momenta paper. I trimmed the top and bottom edge with pinking shears and stitched the image on the patterned paper diagonally on all 4 corners.

Don't forget to join in on all the great giveaways that Crafter's Companion is having this month. 

And since we are all about giveaways this month here at Crafter's Companion how about a stamp set giveaway?!

This weekend we are giving away the SWALK- Little Birdie stamp that I used on my card today!!  To enter to try to win you will need to follow this blog and leave a comment on this post.  This giveaway will end on Sunday, May 6th at midnight PST.  Winner will be announced on Tuesday May 8th.  (Must be a US resident to enter)
I hope you have fun trying something new.

Steph
