Hello! Welcome back to another AnnaBelle Stamps challenge. This week I am back crafting again, as I have finally finished writing school reports. What a relief! Hopefully I can now catch up on my Google Reader list and work on being a friendlier blogger!

I love this week’s sketch. The Belles have all used the stamp set Christmas Scene Baubles – but you don’t have to. I masked off the hills and got very inky with Distress Inks. I then lightly spritzed with water to create the stars. I love how this worked out. I then masked off the top section and inked the bottom with Black Soot Distress Ink.


Stamps: AnnaBelle Stamps Christmas Scene Baubles Stamp set

Ink: Distress Inks – Black Soot, Scattered Straw, Dried Marigold, Worn Lipstick, Barn Door, VersaFine – Onyx Black

Card: AnnaBelle Stamps Smooth White card stock

Other Supplies: Distress Markers – Black Soot, Ranger water spritzer with water, Blending tool

Don’t forget, this week’s Deal of the Week (which starts on Friday and will run until the following Friday) is the Christmas Scene Baubles stamp set which is 20% off for one week. Head to the ABS site for more details.

This week’s winner will receive a $10 Gift Voucher to the AnnaBelle Store.
