absc009 - Love Blooms


           Hello & "Good Day" to you.  It's time once again for this weeks Annabelle Sketch Challenge.  I really liked this sketch.  You're in for a treat today as I am showing a "sneak peek" of some new Annabelle Stamps and products.  These will be released on January 15th and you're going to love them.

The set I'm previewing is called, (Flowers With Love) and features several different flowers that are whimsical and fun along with 5 Sentiment stamps for various occasions. I chose the Large and Small Rose images to use on my card. 

For my card I decided to use some patterned paper from Basic Grey (Eva) and based my colors off the paper.  My card base is Basic Black layered with Old Olive.  I stamped the Rose repeatedly on Watercolor Paper and watercolored the roses using Regal Rose, Rose Red and Old Olive ink pads and an Aqua Painter.  I stamped 3 seperate roses and cut them out and mounted them over the top of three of my roses.  I added a punched piece of Pretty In Pink, some ribbon by (Heidi Grace) and the designer paper.  Then I used the small rose image and the Love Blooms sentiment along with some new Sprinkles (Blackcurrant 3mm) and one Pink Heart (also new to the Annabelle line) and mounted these using circle Nestablities Dies. 

So now be sure to stop by the Annabelle Blog and see what the other DT members have created with this sketch.  You never know there might be some more "sneak peeks" of the new stuff.  You can also participate in the Sketch Challenge by using the Mr. Linky link on the Annabelle Blog.  We'd love to see what you come up with.
