Say it with…a stamped background

Posted by on April 20, 2012 in Annabelle Stamps | 13 comments

Well Friday has certainly come around mighty fast this week. Hope you are ready to jump into another AnnaBelle Stamps Challenge.

(Tag ac070)

This week I have a stamped background, but it is only a partial one! I have used BBD#6 and one of my favourites, Love Birds. This is a one layer card which is quite unusual for me. I have been drawn to cards using masking lately, so thought I would give it a go. Check out Heather Telford’s blog for some other masking ideas – she is a master at it.


Stamps: AnnaBelle Stamps Love Birds stamp set, AnnaBelle Stamps BBD#6 Stamp set, AnnaBelle Stamps Fanciful Flowers stamp set (sentiment)

Ink: VersaFine Onyx Black, Distress Ink – Faded Jeans, Tumbled Glass, Antique Linen, Chipped Sapphire

Card:Β  AnnaBelle Stamps pre-cut cards

Other Supplies: Blending tool, Mask-It

Thanks for stopping by and be sure to check out the rest of the DT projects. Their links are on my sidebar.

Until next time,
