The Magic of Christmas

Posted by on December 7, 2012 in Annabelle Stamps, Challenges, Christmas Cards | 6 comments

Hello! Welcome back to another AnnaBelle Stamps challenge. We have another simple sketch for you.

All the Belles are using the Ornamental Christmas stamp set – but you don’t have to. I decided to use Prismacolors. I love the look of Prismacolor pencils on kraft and they go on like butter!

I also added some score lines along the bottom to fill up the empty space.

I am entering this into the Addicted to CAS #2 Challenge where the code word is Bauble.


Stamps: AnnaBelle Stamps Ornamental Christmas stamp set, AnnaBelle Stamps Jewelled Tree stamp set

Ink: Versamark watermark ink

Card: AnnaBelle Stamps Kraft card stock

Other Supplies: AnnaBelle Stamps white embossing powder, Uniball white Signo pen, Martha Stewart scoring board, scoring stylus, AnnaBelle Stamps Icicle sprinkles, Tombow glue, Prismacolor pencils, WRMK Corner Chomper
