Annabelle's Birthday Bash Challenge
Hey everybody! I've been absent this past week due to sickness. Monday and Tuesday, I wasn't feeling quite right; Wednesday and Thursday, I was flat on my back in bed; and Friday, Saturday, and today I've been trying to get some strength back.
I missed the first day of Annabelle Stamps birthday celebration but here's my card for the recipe challenge #1. And the recipe is:
1. use a new stamp, or your latest Annabelle stamp.
2. use a die cut or punch
3. add bling
This was my third attempt at this image. First, I tried to do it with glitter -- didn't work! Next, I painted flowers with twinkling H2O's and the rest of the image with regular watercolor paint but the look was a little too brash. The third time was the charm when I went with watercolor crayons and a waterbrush.
The stamp sets I used are from Annabelle Stamps. The image is from Ballerina Rose and the sentiment from Sentimental Bluebells. They are my most recent Annabelle purchases.
Cutting was done with Nestabilities Long Classic Rectangles Large and their Scalloped counterparts.
Added four green pearls for the bling, and FINALLY, I had a card completed even though it fought with me tooth and nail! Join me in a cup of the Recipe (I watched an old episode of The Waltons while I've been on the couch recovering) and enter your card over at Sue's blog.
Happy Birthday, Annabelle Stamps!
