AnnaBelle sketch Challenge #49

Posted by on April 27, 2012 in Annabelle Stamps | 17 comments

Happy Friday everyone. Well it is the end of the month so that means a sketch challenge at AnnaBelle Stamps.

(Tag absc049)

This week I have had some fun playing around with some techniques that have been taught in the online card class ‘A Cut Above‘. Such fun! I have never used my spellbinders just for embossing before – I always die cut! I love the subtle effect. The score lines around the focal panel were made using my score board. The flowers are from the AnnaBelle set Daisy Delight and the sentiment is from Fanciful Flowers. I heat embossed the flowers onto coloured cardstock and then added some subtle shading with Copics.


Stamps: AnnaBelle Stamps Daisy Delight, AnnaBelle Stamps Fanciful Flowers stamp set (sentiment)

Ink: VersaFine Onyx Black

Card: AnnaBelle Stamps pre-cut cards, Bazzill – navy blue, Hero Arts Layering Papers – Pool and Carnation
