Peek a Boo Annie

I have been hankering after Annie just forever and ever. When back in the UK a friend told me the Crafty Cow had a 15% sale so off I trundled and when I saw her….. well you can only imagine my joy. I also bought the window which I have used on the card and Becky (can’t wait to use her).

Entering this into the Allsorts Challenge…. it’s a sketch this week and a DT call. I have to say the sketch is very good and easy to follow thanks girls.


Water coloured her and the window curtains onto watercolour paper then cut them both out. Stamped the inside flap curtains straight onto the lilac card… gosh I was in seventh heaven when doing this card she is just adorable. The photo looks strange because the flap kept falling open and it covered the end of the card but you get the picture (pardon the pun) of what it looks like. The other photo is of the inside flap, stamped trailing vine and added flower soft.

The window aperture is cut away and see through but when I took the photos it looked black so with my graphics program I manipulated the black to pink, so you will have to visualize it see through. Card looks better in the flesh, might, if I have time, try and take better photos today.

Used vellum for the first mat and again stamped the vine around the edges… did this because I knew the vellum wouldn’t show up very well on the photo. Wanted to to see the pretty paper underneath which is Basic Grey – wisteria that’s why I used vellum. The sentiment is on the bottom right of the inside flap but have not shown because this card is for a very dear friend.Shirl

    Shirl, this is such a cute stamp, you have coloured her so delicately, she’s perfect. The flowersoft on the vines just finishes it off nicely. Love it.

    Hi Shirl

    What a brilliant way to use the sketch. Your card is really lovely – great to see both sides of “Annie”. I love your stitching too!!

    You made me smile when you said you had been waiting “forever and ever” for Annie. Exactly how long is this? Is it like my “forever and ever” where a new image is involved .. .. .. say 3 months!!! LOL!!!!

    Thank you for playing along with Allsorts this week and also for your DT application.

    Love Jules xx
