AnnaBelle Sketch Challenge: ABSC050

Posted by on May 25, 2012 in Annabelle Stamps | 10 comments

Wow…where has this last week gone? My has been super busy! We took the kids to my parent’s farm for a relaxing 5 days – but it has been a bit hectic catching up on everything since being back.

Anyway, hope you are ready for another challenge at AnnaBelle Stamps. This week is a sketch challenge.

(Tag absco50)

I must admit that this card doesn’t feel like a ‘me’ card – but it is nice to try something different now and again. I did have fun colouring in Lil’ Molly with Distress markers – they are awesome. I tend to shy away from images that have hair and skin as I am just not that good at colouring them in…but I guess practice makes perfect!

I pretty much kept to the sketch this time.


Stamps: AnnaBelle Stamps Lil Molly’s Flowers stamp set, AnnaBelle Stamps Dotted Flowers Stamp Set (sentiment)

Ink: Versafine – Onyx Black, Ranger Distress Markers

Card: AnnaBelle Stamps Pre-cut smooth white cards

Other Supplies:  Zig Watercolour pen, Acquarello watercolour paper, Foam dimensionals, My Mind’s Eye – Lost and Found patterned paper, AnnaBelle Stamps 4mm Sprinkles – Icicles, Tombow adhesive, Tim Holtz ruler, paper piercer tool, foam piercing mat, WRMK Corner Chomper
