Warmest Wishes Anyas!

Happy Tuesday Ladies! I know I have not blogged in a bit, but we went to Disney's Animal Kingdom this weekend and then to visit friends in Lake Mary. We had a great time visiting and hanging out as a family. Of course, I cannot be without my Copic markers and images to color! So, I packed some of my fav colors up and off we went. I have been so busy lately, I have been carrying my markers with me everywhere I go! Does anyone else take their stuff with them and work on things? I took them to the Ford Dealership the other day to work on some stuff and got some funny looks!

I am going to share some of the images I made last week with ya today. This is The Greeting Farm's newest Autumn Anya Digi!! Yay - you know how much I {heart} digi's! :) I fell in love with her hair at first sight...and Ugg boots - so cute!
These Miss Anya's remind me so much of my 13 year old daughter, who has long blond hair. In the last year, has become very picky about clothing, hair, etc - oh, the teenage years! She is a sweetie tho - we are very blessed in that regard! This stamp screamed at me since she wants a pair of Ugg-type boots for Christmas (**shhh...she's gettin' some!) Here in FL, it is awfully warm to wear them, but even when it's 85 outside, I see girls wearing them! I used some Basic Grey Eva Paper paired with Pink Pirouette and Kiwi Kiss. The sentiment is from PTI's Holiday Treats Set. Love the sentiments in that set! I used oval nesties, Marvy (snowflake) & SU (ovals) punches as well as a dew drop and some Stickles to complete the card.
Here is a close-up and a rundown of some of the colors I used for her:

Face - E000, E00, R20; Hair - E50, Y21, Y26; Scarf - YG00, G99, G20; Jeans - B91, 93, 95, 97; Jacket - R81, 85 & 89; Boots - E30 & 33. I also airbrushed the background with YG000.

Ok, so you will notice a trend....I used the same image on all of my cards! So, if you did not like Anya , you can stop reading here! LOL!

Ok, now that I know you are still reading, b/c she's too cute to hate, here is card #2!
This is another blond Anya using some Basic Grey Eskimo Kisses DP along with Pink Pirouette and Old Olive cardstock. This sentiment comes from PTI's '09 Holiday Tag Collection. I used SU's word window and modern label punches for this sentiment and a Christmas Tree border punch from EK Success to go above the strip of houses. I added more snowflakes, Stickles and dew drops to this one too.

For this one, I used the same colors as above, except the background was lightly airbrushed using BG10 and the jacket was colored with RV21 & 29.

For card #3, I made virtually the same card as the first one, using same DP, etc. Except, her hair is a darker blond!
I added a few more snowflakes, Stickles - you get the point!

See her hair? I love this color combo, because it really pops! For her hair, I used: E47, 50, 53 & 59!

Here's #4! I know, I know, you probably never want to see this Anya again by now, but she is just adorable to me. I would finish coloring one and start another one!
For the card, I used some more Eskimo Kisses DP, but paired it with Riding Hood Red and Old Olive this time. I kept the sketch the same (why ruin a good thing, eh?) and just added a simple small Clever Lever snowflake punch and a dew drop.
The colors for this one are the same except for:
Scarf - R32, 35, & 37; Jacket - G20, 94 & 99. I airbrushed the background using BG000 and created dots on her scarf using the colorless blender. I love how the dots turned out.

I hope I did not bore you to tears with my repetitive image and sketch! I will be adding some of these and other cards to my Etsy store soon - hopefully today!
On another note, I got all of my Thanksgiving shopping done this morning! The kids get out early today, so I wanted to finish that and avoid the stores when it will be so crowded! Have a Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
Hugs, ~Tori
