Say it with…

Hi…time for another challenge at AnnaBelle Stamps. Quite a tricky colour combo this week.

(Tag aco77)

I had to hunt through my card stock to match the colours (as I don’t have a grey ink!) In the end I came up with the following 2 cards.

To continue on with the grey theme, I used silver embossing powder for the sentiments. I also added Glossy Accents to the little heart on the second card.


Stamps: AnnaBelle Stamps Fanciful Flowers stamp set, AnnaBelle Stamps Love Birds stamp set (sentiment on 2nd card)

Ink: Versamark watermark ink

Card: AnnaBelle Stamps pre-cut smooth white cards , Bazzill cardstock – light grey, dark grey, green and blue (not sure of the correct colour names!)

Other Supplies: Silver embossing powder, heat tool, anti static pillow, Carl Craft punch – small and medium heart, Glossy Accents, foam dimensionals
