A Sneak Peek!

Yesterday I told you about a new line of stamps which are to be released on Friday 5th October.
These stamps are called Hanna Stamps and they are so adorable! I am thrilled that Kristi asked me to be part of her design team! As I live in Australia I have had to wait a few extra days for my stamps to arrive so I could start creating some cards using this set .... we I was so pleased when Aust Post came knocking on my door this afternoon while I was making my card for this weeks sketch challenge.

I had already created the file folder yesterday, I had so much fun creating my file folder on the weekend for Beate's weekend sketch challenge that I wanted to make another one and thought I black and white one would be fun to do.

I have kept this card pretty much all black & white except for the flesh color on Hanna! I used paper piecing for Hanna's dress and paper piercing around the band. For this one I decided to make the band a belly band so it can slide off to open the card if required, it helps keep the card closed. The flower is actually a white flower but I wanted it to be black so colored it with my alcohol markers.

Stamps: All Stamps - Hanna Stamps
Paper: Black & White; Imaginese DP
Other: Black Ink; Flower; White Brad; White Gel Pen; Scallop Circle Punch; Tab Punch; Black Grosgrain Ribbon; Paper Piercing Mat & Tool; CM Circle Cutter

Love the contrast and the look of the black and white. I'll have to check out the Hanna stamps.
I notice you use Whipper Snapper stamps. I live 30 minutes from the owner's store.
I'm also a collector of owls and a stamper. I'll check back to see what you do next.
