Friday Feature - Blog Hop

Hello everyone, I hope you are surviving the heat!  It's time to join in with the AnnaBelle blog hop as we celebrate the release of two brand new sets!!  This month we are looking a little romantic and elegant, so I hope you love the new sets!



I have gone very simple with my cards as I still try to find some semblance of creativity!  So here goes!


It's not obvious in the photo but the first layer is raised by dimensional foam and sits above the black base card.  I stamped the BBD9 background after removing some of the ink with a baby wipe, but think now I would've liked to have stamped of once first to lighten the colour.


Using the lovely soft DI Tattered Rose I coloured my base  card by applying the pad directly to the card then inked the BBD9 background once again and stamped.  Using the fabulous Stamp-a-ma-jig I lined up the square pattern and stamped it 4 times before adding my sentiment.


I couldn't resist using the background one more time!  I've stamped directly on to a white base card with DI Festive Berries and then distressed with DI Antique Linen.  My other image is from Standing Tall and has been water coloured.

Now if you've arrived via the AnnaBelle blog then you already know that one lucky person is going to win these sets just by following along with our hop, so be sure to add your name to the Inlinkz once you've finished!!

Thanks for stopping by! Now you'll want to head on over to Kylie's blog to see what she has created with these new sets!

Hugs for now,

Andrea
