AnnaBelle Stamps Sketch Challenge #49

Hello!  It's been a little while since I've posted, things have been a little rough here lately and I haven't felt very inspired.  But last night I sat down and watercoloured the image for this card, and I feel better for it.  Watercolouring is always so therapeutic for me.  :-)

My card is for the current AnnaBelle Stamps Challenge - ABSC049...

I really enjoyed watercolouring this daisy from Squared Posies...

Hello, and welcome to my post for this week's AnnaBelle Stamps Challenge - Say It With A Stamped Background!  I've made an ultra simple card using Fanciful Flowers to Emboss Resist and some of my favourite Distress Inks sponged over the top.

And finished off with a White Satin bow.  :-)

Little Red Car

Hello!  I have a card to share with you using The Alley Way Stamps Priceless Joy set - how cute is that little car?!  I watercoloured it with Distress Inks and Stains and then applied some Glossy Accents over the red for a shiny finish.  :-)

I clear embossed the same image repeatedly on some Naturals Ivory card stock for the panel behind the card, I think it's a cute effect.

And these are the challenges that inspired it!

I focused on the first three colours.

Thanks for visiting!  :-)

Enjoy Today - ISSC11

It's sketch time again with iSpy Sketches!  I'm just going to get straight into sharing my card...

I adore this stamp!  It's called Enjoy Today Plain Jane by Verve Stamps, and I watercoloured it using Distress Inks and Stains.

And here's the sketch based on this divine card from Julia Stainton:

Say It In... Black - AC069

Hello!  I'm back with another AnnaBelle Stamps Challenge post.  The theme this week is to Say It In... Black, because of course today is Friday 13th.  I love using black in card making, it can look so elegant.  Of course, photographing dark cards can be tricky, so I'm pretty pleased with how this one turned out!

I used Backgrounds By Design 2 to create the background panel in Versamark and then clear embossed it.  I black embossed the sentiment from Fanciful Flowers on some vellum, and finished it off with some .8mm Black Hemp Twine.

And... because everyone likes a sale...
