Happy Birthday Anya!

Happy Friday! Hope everyone has a fun weekend planned. We really do not have much on the schedule for this weekend and it is so refreshing to have some down time! I am planning on doing some reading myself! I finally bit the bullet and decided to read Twilight (really like the movie!) - I started it Tuesday night and finished it last night and started reading New Moon (another good movie)! My 13 yr old daughter and her friends are very into the Twilight stuff and she has really been on me to read them. I am very eager to get through the series!

I have a few Anya cards to share with you today that I have recently made. The first one is from the Miss Anya Love set. I love the sweet and gentle look about this image. I pulled out some Making Memories Chloe's Closet DP pack from last year for this card. I matched it with some So Saffron and Brocade Blue cardstock. To deepen the color of the Blue cardstock, I sponged some Blue Bayou ink around the edges. The head pin is also from the same MM collection. The flower was hand crocheted by me. The ribbon is Enchanted Evening Twill from PTI. I typed up the sentiment and printed it out and airbrushed it. For texture, I stitched around the checkered panel.
Here is a close up of this sweet girl. I colored her with the following copics: dress: B91, 93, 95, 97 & 99, Flowers: Y21 & YR16, Skin: E000, E00, E11, R20, Hair: E50, 53, 55. I added some lemon & orange Atyou spica glitter to the flowers. I cut her out and then popped her up on a panel I cut using my nesties and then airbrushed with Y21.

My second card uses the Rain Snow Shine Miss Anya set. I made this card back in December, but forgot to post it!
This is kind of quick one I threw together using a sketch challenge, but I can't remember which one it is - LOL! The sentiment is from a penguin Unity stamp set. I used some Eskimo Kisses DP along with some Cool Caribbean & Perfect Plum I inked to make darker. The embellishments were made with the Retro Flower (EK Success) & small snowflake (Clever Lever) and a teal pearl (Basic Grey).
Here is a close-up of my colored image. I do not recall the exact Copics I used, but here is an educated guess: BG10, 11, 72, E000, E00, E30, E33, E35, E50, R20, Y21, 23, 26, R81, 85, & 89. I added some white fun flock to her hand muff and her boots - so wintery! :)

Have a great weekend! ~Tori
