AnnaBelle Stamps - Twofer!

I think I must be psychic! I made this card I'm showing you today on Wednesday for AnnaBelle Stamps monthly bling sketch challenge ABSC036, I just hadn't got around to posting it here to my blog yet. Lo and behold when AnnaBelle Stamps blog posted their weekly challenge yesterday, the theme is 'Say It In......Orange, Purple and Neutral'. These were the exact colours that I had used for the sketch challenge, so that made it a 'twofer' card! This certainly isn't a colour combination that I would normally use either, I think it works though!


For my images, I used white cardstock sponged with Tim Holtz Old Paper Distress Ink. I stamped two flower images from Hero Arts Poetic Petals stamp set, the 3rd piece is stamped with a Kaisercraft sentiment and the small Darkroom Door silhouette flowers are inked with TH Rusty Hinge Distress Ink and stamped over it. The larger flowers are coloured with Prismacolor pencils and odourless mineral spirit. The background patterned paper (Basic Grey Blush) is sponged around the edges with TH Rusty Hinge and Walnut Stain Distress Inks and stamped with a larger Darkroom Door silhouette flower with TH Rusty Hinge Distress Ink.

I like the vintage look of my card, please let me know what you think! Hope you are having a great weekend in your part of the world!
