Annabelle Stamps - Oct. Previews - Lil Belles Michelle and Monster

Preview time at Annabelle Stamps, hope you started at Andrea's blog as she is your first stop. If you came to me from Teresa's blog you're on the right track.  Don't forget to leave a comment at each stop, tell us what you like about the new images.  You could be the randomly picked winner of BOTH the sets featured. We have 3 days of previews with a winner each day.

I'm really excited to show you the new October images, six in total and today we have two to share.  My first card features one of the Lil' Belles stamps called Michelle......... so sweet isn't she.  Break out the Copic markers start 'flicking' two shades to colour top and skirt, or get those colouring pencils with OMS and start shading.  This month is all about colouring.......well almost all!



I've added some stitching to my card along with some sponging. Some gorgeous pink satin ribbon from Annabelle as well as the blossom sprinkle.  This little image comes with a choice of 3 sentiments too.

My second card features one for the boys!  Lil' Monster.     Ha ha.....look at those eyes!!  
                                                            
I kept this card very basic black...... and a monster to me is green so ........ I Copic Coloured this image then cut it out discarding the balloon string and keeping his balloon separate to pop up on foam. I added the gold cord which I could shape slightly.  I stamped the xxx on his T shirt and another of the sentiments onto his balloon.......you might just see the smiley face!  This little monster is so much fun, he comes with another sentiment (not used here) 'Have a Monster of a Birthday!'   


Now are you ready to move on to the next stop of your hop?   Ida follows me and I'm sure she has some inspiring projects to share with you.  

17th October is day 2 of our previews, with two slightly different sets to share.  All six previewed sets go on sale after 12pm on 19th October. I'd love to hear what you think of these images.  Thanks for stopping by.

See you soon......

Wonderful cards. Michelle looks so cute and girlie and that bow is to die for.
