SHOPPING OUR STASH #391 - Best Friends Day

Hello and welcome crafty friends!
This fortnight at SHOPPING OUR STASH we are
celebrating our best friends!

I really shopped my stash, and uncovered this stamp set
that had never seen ink! It's got to be at least 7 years old.
(***cough hoarder cough***)
Here's my take:

She is so cute! And bonus, that sentiment came with the set. I had that bit
of butterfly paper left so I based my coloring from it, using Spectrum Noir
markers. She's fussy cut and popped up on foam squares, as is the sentiment.
It's hard to see in this photo, but the barrette, beads, belt, bow and shoes have all been 
winked by Stella. A few rhinestones and done!

I hope that you find some time to play along in our Best Friends challenge
at Shopping Our Stash! We'd love to see your projects.
Thanks for visiting, and I hope that you have a great day!

  1. Super cute image great take on the sketch, and bonus with the sentiment. Great card!!!

  2. Love the image, good job inking up a "collected" crafting item :)
    Love that butterfly paper as well!

  3. Sweet image of this little girl that reminds me about that show back in the late 60s" called "Astro Boy", it was a fun cartoon about this little boy who had some really extraordinary powers, one of them was flying.
    Anywho Chris, love this image, beautifully colored, the DSP is just perfect in the background, it's great you are discovering these NIMBUS sets and you are playing with them.


  4. Great stash find and you have given it a wonderful presentation. This make is beautifully composed and the color integration is top drawer. Nice project, Chris!

  5. This is such a lovely card! The image is so cute. Thank you so much for sharing with us at Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge. :)
