Show us your bling!

I am absolutely delighted to be a guest designer at Annabelle Stamps for the month of April. I love their stamps and products and love their challenges so I am delighted to be able to participate as a guest designer. My first post in this role is for the fantastic Bling Sketch challenge. Here is the sketch for this month….

And here is my take on the sketch using my favourite Annabelle Stamp set, Rockin’ Instrumental….

I replaced the squares on the sketch with the drums, guitar and sentiment. These were all clear embossed to add some shine and dimension. The guitar and sentiment were adhered using dimensional foam to give even more dimension. I created the background using a sheet of white card that I repeatedly stamped the music notes from the set on and clear embossed. I then inked up the background using my distress inks. My bling is the superb star crystal gems, I love these beauties, they really do shine!!

We would love to see your work using this sketch….
