AnnaBelle Sketch Challenge

Posted by on June 29, 2012 in Annabelle Stamps | 12 comments

Welcome back! Friday has rolled around again, so it is time for another challenge at AnnaBelle Stamps. Being the end of the month, means we have a sketch challenge. Quite an easy one…with so many possibilities!

(Tag absc 051)

Today I used one of the new dies that is now selling in the store – Cuts by Design – Shapes 1. I also used two little flowers from the Stemmed Flowers set and with a little bit of masking, I created a flowery label. I coloured them in with Copics.

To add a little texture to the card, I embossed a pattern using my scoreboard (again!). The central panel is popped up with dimensionals.


Stamps: AnnaBelle Stamps Stemmed Flowers, AnnaBelle Stamps Squared Posies stamp set (sentiment)

Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Verscolor – Green Tea, Versafine – Onyx Black, Distress Marker – Peeled Paint (detail on leaves)

Card: AnnaBelle Stamps pre-cut smooth white cards

Other Supplies: AnnaBelle Stamps – Cuts by Design – Shapes 1, Cuttlebug, foam dimensionals, AnnaBelle Stamps satin ribbon – Moss, Copic Markers (YR31, Y32, YR65, YR68, R29), Martha Stewart scoreboard, Mask-It film, Tombow adhesive, AnnaBelle Stamps 4mm Sprinkles – Icicle

Hope you can find the time to play along with us. This week the winner will receive the Lil Bee’s Big Flowers stamp set.
