It is the last Friday of the month, so that means a sketch challenge at AnnaBelle Stamps.
I’ll be honest here…I struggled with this one. It was the half circle that threw me, so I took some liberties with the sketch which I turned. Hope that I wasn’t bending the rules too much!
The main panel is distress ink blending (like I showed in my video tutorial this week), but for some variation, I sprayed it lightly with a mister to create a splotchy water effect (I think it looks like a night sky full of stars!). I stamped the birds and cages from Love Birds and the sentiment is Garden silhouettes. The yellow is washi tape! This week’s winner will receive the awesome Fanciful Flowers stamp set – one of my favourites!
Ink: Versafine – Onyx Black, Distress Inks – Tumbled Glass, Broken China, Faded Jeans
Other Supplies: Ranger ink blending tool, Washi tape, Foam dimensionals, Mister with water,
Hope you will find the time to play along. Be sure to check out the rest of the Belles projects – their links are on my sidebar.
