Say it with…Thanks

Welcome to another challenge at AnnaBelle Stamps.

The Belles were given the challenge to use a background stamp this week…but you don’t have to, it just needs to be a thank you card.

I am really in love with the BBD#5 background stamp. All I did was white heat embossed the background stamp onto several different colours of Hero Arts layering papers. I then added some tone on tone shading with Copic markers to add more interest.


Stamps:Β  AnnaBelle Stamps BBD# 5 stamp set, AnnaBelle Stamps Garden Silhouettes stamp set (sentiment)

Ink: Versamark watermark ink

Card: AnnaBelle Stamps Smooth White card stock, HA Layering papers – Poppy, Carnation, Punch, Mandarin

Other Supplies: MFT Hearts-a-Plenty Die, Cuttlebug, AnnaBelle Stamps Buttons – Rapsberry, Copic Markers, AnnaBelle Stamps embossing powder – white, heat tool, anti-static pillow, AnnaBelle Stamps hemp twine – 0.8mm white, Zots glue dots

This week’s winner will receive a $10 Gift Voucher to the AnnaBelle Store. Hope you will find the time to play along. Be sure to check out the rest of the Belles projects – their links are on my sidebar.
