Hi everyone,

It’s Friday so that means it is time for another challenge at AnnaBelles’s …this week is a sketch challenge.

I decided to turn the sketch on its side. I actually mixed and matched some stamps for this one. The flower head is from the Squared Posies set, but I wanted a longer stem, so I used some stem/leaves  from a stamp in the Whimsy Flowers set. I decided to use a big button as the circle component of the sketch.


Stamps: AnnaBelle Stamps “Squared Posies” and “Whimsy Flowers
Ink: Versafine Ink – Onyx Black, Distress Inks – Worn Lipstick, Peeled Paint, Dried Marigold
Card: Regal Craft Card (White textured single fold), Bazzill card – green, ribbed white card, X-Press It blending card
Other Supplies: Annabelle’s Sprinkles – 6mm Lime, American Crafts clear embossing powder, heat gun,  foam dimensionals, paint brush, pink striped grosgrain ribbon, pink button (from my stash brand unknown), Glossy Accents, Cuttlebug, Cuttlebug Polka Dots embossing folder, sponge dauber, WRMK corner chomper, DMC Floss – white, Zots adhesive dots – small, Copic markers, black felt pen

Thanks for dropping by…hope that you can join in and play along – the winner will receive a $15 Gift voucher to the store. Be sure to check out what the rest of the DT have created. Their links are on the left sidebar.

Until next time,
