Annabelle New Release Blog Hop!

It's finally here! Three new releases from Annabelle stamps and my first release on the DT! The designs are beautiful and it was hard to decided which set to feature today... But I chose Remember When. A large set featuring various poppies and sentiments. 


I haven't used my Distress Markers in a while, so I decided to watercolour! I stamped the image on watercolour paper with Archival ink, and got to colouring. The background is my favourite part and it's what took the most time too! Many, many layers of turquoise ink later and I had that soft, yet striking wash of blue to set off the red poppies. And just in case you're wondering, I did intentionally bleed the red out of the lines a little. I thought it would give the blooms a little glow... 



Next on the blog hop is Marcia! 


Hop on through all the blogs and then add your name to the Inlinkz at the ABS blog. You could win big!  Yes one lucky randomly selected person will win all three sets!!  You have until Sunday evening at 8.00pm to get your name in!

To celebrate the release we have these three sets on offer at a discounted price!  Purchase the three set bundle and save 20%!!  Be sure to add the bundle HERE rather than the sets individually :)  This offer is open until midnight Sunday AEST so you don't have long to take advantage, and don't worry because if you are the lucky winner of our hop and you've purchased the bundle I'll refund the purchase amount!!
