Annabelle Stamps Colour Challenge

Hi guys! I have had the strangest stomach bug the last couple of days and haven't felt much like creating, so it's a good thing I got a lot done this past weekend! I was on a roll for a few days and actually worked ahead. If you know me, then you know that this NEVER happens; I am always the last one to submit a card for a challenge or I'm scheduling my blog posts at 11:59!!! It feels good to have projects done ahead of time on days like these where I can't sit upright for longer than 10 minutes. I MUST remember this for the future, but knowing me it won't change much...

Onto today's card:


My mojo was flowin' that night! I know, because this danged starburst background is sometimes a pain-in-the-butt but I really wanted it to highlight this week's challenge. One triangle for each colour.... It was fun to go through my patterned paper and find just the right colour to match.


Isn't this image a beauty? I get asked ALL THE TIME which do I prefer: Copics or Distress Markers?? I never know what to say since they are so different. For me, there is NO WAY I could get my Copic markers to get this beautiful swoopy sunset look. Watercolour markers have a beauty all their own and when I want a background to look like this - Distress Markers all the way! (I used the Broad Distress Waterpen to get that sunset look... Tutorial in the future, perhaps?? It's really easy...)


Papers: Mostly MME
Colouring Medium: Distress Markers and Waterpens
Ink: Archival

About our challenges:
  • We post our challenges every second Friday at 8:00pm AEST (AEDT during Daylight Savings).
  • Each challenge runs for a week, and will close on the Friday 10.00am so that we can announce and showcase our weekly winners prior to the next challenge.
  • Each weeks winner will receive our special blinkie to display on their blog and a $15.00 Gift Voucher to spend in store at AnnaBelle Stamps (or something equivalent).
How To Play Along:
  • Copy and save our challenge banner and include it and a link back to the ABS blog in your post.
  • For those without a blog you can still play along! Simply upload your card to our Stamp Embellish Create social site (you’ll need to join) and add the current challenge ‘tag’ to your photo!
  • Please link directly to your entry not just to your blog.
  • Please don’t link to postings made prior to the date of our current challenge. All projects submitted must be new.
  • A maximum of 7 challenges may be combined including this one.
  • You may enter any of our challenges several times as long as each submission is with a new creation.
  • We would love you to use AnnaBelle Stamps and embellishments, but you can play along without using them, it’s all about sharing ideas :)
