Happy Birthday Crafter's Companion and Giveaway Friday

Hello all,
Welcome to another Friday's post with Steph. First off, Happy Birthday to Crafter's Companion! We're celebrating 7 yrs this week for our UK office! Thank you for supporting us all this time.

To celebrate, we are giving away 3 freebie stamps, exclusive to Crafter's Companion, with every purchase. You can find these stamps here. Here is my card today:



I used one of the Mulberry Wood stamp sets released last week.  The image is colored with Spectrum Noir markers.
Bear: GB8, GB10, TN2, EB1
Dress: BT1, BT2, BT4
Hat: GB1, GB3, GB4
Flowers/bouquet: LV1, LV2, CT1, CT2, DG2, DG3
Ground shadow: BG1

I've been feeling much better about my Spectrum Noir marker coloring lately after all this practice - I found that I usually go from dark to light because it gives me better blending and then just touching up with dark again.

I hope you've been practicing with your Spectrum Noir markers!
