Sweet Stampin' Challenge - A Little Bird Told Me..

Hello everyone, here's my last Design Team card for Sweet Stampin' Challenge Blog. for 2013. The theme this week is A Little Bird Told Me... (or have a bird on it). Remember your card/project must have a stamped element on it. We hold a weekly challenge with a fantastic prize plus a monthly prize draw for everyone who enters a card/project throughout the month. 

Isn't she a cutie pie! She was such a dream to colour in and for this card I used my Prisma pencils and some solvent. I stamped her 3 times and coloured certain sections of her in, then I cut these sections out and layered them up. To draw your eye in I used my pan pastels to sweep colour around the edge to frame the image. Finally I matted her onto coordinating card stock and added my die cut flowers and banner.

Here's what I used:
Digi Stamps: Wee Stamps 'Peggy'
Cardstock: White card base, Green & Blue Cs, Blue Glitter CS, First Edition 'Up Up & Away'
Dies: Tattered Lace 'Embellishment Dies', Britannia Dies 'Small Multi Flower', Medium 'Multi Flower', Signature Dies 'Bunting' 
Prisma Pencils: Skin - Light Peach, Peach, Blush Rose, Burnt Ochre & Berol Verithin - Peach / Hair - Sand, Yellow Ochre, Goldenrod, Sienna Brown / Flowers & Bird - Light Cerulean Blue, True Blue, Copenhagen Blue, Flower Centre - Canary Yellow, Yellowed Orange /  Socks, Bows & Frills - Gingeroot, Sand & Crayola 'Sable' / Dress - Chartreuse, Spring Green, Apple Green, Olive Green
Other: Pan Pastels 'Phathlo Green', 'Turquoise', 'Bright Yellow Green',  MS 'Branch' Punch, Paper Stumps, Sansdor, Gems

So why not drop by Sweet Stampin' Challenge Blog and check out what my fabulous Design Teamies have created to inspire you, and while you're there why not enter your card or project into our challenge. This week's sponsor and prize is from Crafty Ribbons and the monthly draw sponsor is The Ribbon Girl.
