AnnaBelle Sketch Challenge #52

Posted by on July 27, 2012 in Annabelle Stamps, Christmas Cards | 13 comments

It is the last Friday of the month, so that means a sketch challenge at AnnaBelle Stamps.

Hope you can play along with us, as the winner will receive the Christmas Scene Bauble stamp set. This is the stamp set I have used today as well as the Holly Branch Stamp set for the sentiment.

I kept things pretty simple with heat embossing onto kraft. I did a little bit if masking and to add some colour I used some 3mm Chilli sprinkles. I used a neutral Gray Copic marker to go around the outside of the baubles for some subtle definition.


Stamps: AnnaBelle Stamps Christmas Scene Bauble stamp set, AnnaBelle Stampa Holly Branch Stamp set (sentiment)

Ink: Versamark watermark ink

Card: AnnaBelle Stamps kraft cardstock

Other Supplies: Mask It film, AnnaBelle Stamps Opaque white embossing powder, heat tool, anti-static pillow, Tombow adhesive, AnnaBelle Stamps 3mm sprinkles – Chilli, Signo uniball gel pen – white, Copic marker – NO, WRMK Corner Chomper
