AHOY it’s another AnnaBelle Bling Challenge!

Welcome back to another AnnaBelles Stamps Bling Challenge!  I honestly had sooo much fun putting this card together and that’s me who shys away from sketch challenges, I’m usually a colour girl!  I finally got a chance to try out Sue’s fabulous ‘fur’ technique that she showed at her tutorial Copic Textures (tt004).  Awesome!  There is a new tutorial every Tuesday so head on over to the Stamp Embellish Create social site and take a peek!

More BIG news today we are welcoming a new Belle, I’ve long been a fan and am totally in awe of her colouring skills, it’s so exciting to have Danielle Daws join our team.  Please visit  her blog HERE and say a welcome hi, and dont’ forget to say a big hello to the rest of the team too, they are FABulous!  You can find their links in my sidebar.

  1. So cute Therese!! Love that lifesaver with the twine and trim that looks like rope with that wood plank background and the cut out circle. So creative!!

    1. Hi Chunyuan,
      For the front of the card I used kraft paper that I cut into strips after stamping it with AnnaBelles Background stamp and then distressed the edges. It was easy to piece together like planks and then just draw the ‘nails’ with a Memento Dual Marker (Rich Cocoa).
      Hope this is helpful. Therese

  2. OMG..I just realised how you made the wooden planks, they’re awesome Therese!! Excellent card, love the peep hole in the front and just look at that twisted cord…love it :0)
