Annabelle Sketch Challenge 26


Friday is sketch challenge time at Annabelle Stamps and Andrea has set the challenge ..... what do you think?

You can flip it if you like and you can use any stamp but if you have an Annabelle Stamp we would  love to see how you use it.  You have two weeks to join in this challenge so come and play along with us. Read on to find out all about the prize one randomly picked participant will win.

Today I've used the main image from Ballerina Rose. This is such a striking image and reminds me of old fashioned cottage gardens.  

If you take a closer look at my card you can see that I stamped and coloured the image then cut it out to stick over a die cut oval!  I had thought to cut around the blossoms and leaves on half the oval only........ but it just looked ODD with the four pink strips, so ended up cutting it all.

I've embossed the pale lemon and pink ribbon strips with Swiss dots and the green strip has been stamped with a wood grain stamp (a holiday buy) great for backgrounds. Some pink gems from the Pink Petals kit add the bling to my card and sentiment.

Inks used: Memento tuxedo black and MS Hibiscus.
The image: was coloured with a mixture of Copic markers and Prisma's.

Play along with us and you could win one of the Annabelle Stamps sets 'Jewelled Tree'.

I'll be back tomorrow at 12pm AEST with the ABS Preview 2 .    Don't forget you have until then to leave your comments on Preview 1's set  for your chance to win a copy of that set. 


I'll have a second post on Saturday 17th - 5pm my time which is 8am GMT ....not sure about all the time zones in the US (sorry). I have a card to add to the Waltzingmouse Blog Waltz, these are such fun hops hope you can join us.

Till then................
