Hello butterfly

Hello. It’s time for another sketch challenge at AnnaBelle Stamps. We have quite a simple sketch this month – so interpret it any way you like.


To create the rainbow chevron pattern on the tag, I used an arrow stamp from the Splat Attack stamp set. The background cross-hatch stamping on the card is BBD#5 – I just stamped it in both directions. I think I use this stamp somewhere most weeks as I love it! Tone on tone stamping rocks – in my opinion 🙂 The sentiment comes from BBD#8.
