Sweet Card for a Sweet Girl

Hi all!  Before I get started, don't forget to enter the Crafter's Companion Giveaway on my blog.


Today, I'm sharing a new card on the Crafter's Companion Information Blog.  I love the S.W.A.L.K. stamps for practicing coloring!  They have large areas where you can really practice blending and shading.  My card for today features Sweet Little Girl from the new S.W.A.L.K. collection.


I colored her using Spectrum Noirs on ultrasmooth premium white cardstock.  Here's my coloring cheat sheet.  I like taking pictures of the colors I use with the image so I have something to refer back to later even if I use the image for a project.


When I finished my coloring, I chose soft pink papers from my stash and mounted the image and the papers with light green cardstock to pull out the colors from my image.

I'd like to enter this card in the following challenges:
1. Shopping Our Stash #51 - three or more designer papers
2. Papertake Weekly - cute, cute, cute
3. The Paper Shelter #63 - anything goes

Happy Crafting!
