Say it with…Paper Piecing

Posted by on June 15, 2012 in Annabelle Stamps, Distress inks | 12 comments

Friday has rolled around again, so that means another challenge at AnnaBelle Stamps. This week is a fun one…who doesn’t love a paper piecing challenge?

(Tag aco76)

Today the Belles are giving you a peek at some new AnnaBelle stamps that are being officially released into the store this afternoon at 4pm (AEST). Be sure to head to the AnnaBelle Stamps Blog at 4pm for the full release AND for a give away!! In the meantime you’ll just have to check out the Belle’s creations for some hints.

I have created a little scene today, masking off everything outside the circle using Mask It.

The kite is covered in Glossy Accents to give it a little shine…but it doesn’t show in the photo very well. I added some simple Copic shading to the trees and grass. I probably should have added some to the kite, but only thought of that now!

For this one I put the sentiment inside the card…something I never seem to do. Don’t know why really!
