AnnaBelle Bling Sketch Challenge #048

Hi Blogger's  are you ready to play along with this weeks sketch from Andrea?  One lucky person could be shopping in the why not play along.

For my card I started with a pre folded blue card with a matching envelope and used BBD #5 and VersaMark to stamp the mottled background. 

The image is from Whimsy Flowers, I used a Spellbinder die to trim the stamped scallop from the edge.   To colour this image, which I stamped to watercolour paper, I used my Inktense colouring pencils.  It's a while since I played with these, I'd forgotten how a little water makes the colours come to life.

The felt ric rac was cut using a Die-namics jumbo ric rac die and I added the white spots with a Sharpie poster paint pen.Some ABS pearl tear drops for my bling this week and the sentiment also stamped using Versamark.

Hope you'll go check on the Belle's creations this week.  We are thrilled to be welcoming a new member to our team this week,  drop by and say hello to Danielle.  All the links are under the DT tab at the top of my page.
