Blue, Pink and Cream Flowery Dressy Miss Anya

Here is my entry to this week's Pink Elephant blog challenge, which has Bright Colours as its theme.

I recently bought two sets of the Miss Anya stamps (Dressy and Love) from someone having a bit of a crafty clear-out so I decided I'd use one of them for this card. I've been after these stamps since they were released but couldn't really justify the cost, so thank you to Sam for having a clear-out and allowing me to get them!!!

The Flowery Dressy Miss Anya image was stamped using Memento Tuxedo Black dye ink and coloured using Copic sketch markers:

  • Hair: E51, E35, E57

  • Skin: E00, E02, E21

  • Dress/Pinafore: B00, E51, R20, RV21

  • Socks: E51, R20, RV21

  • Shoes: B00

  • Flower: B00, R20, E51
The image was then matted onto pink and blue card.

A strip of the pink mini roses and ribbons paper from the Papermania Blueberry Hill paper pack was matted onto the pink card and across the centre of a panel of the blue and pink bold roses paper from the same paper pack.

The corners of a square of the pink card were punched using the XCut Vine Silhouette corner punch and the square panel of patterned paper was slotted behind the punched corners.

A length of blue organza ribbon was tied around the panel and the Miss Anya panel was attached in the centre.

Two ticket images from the Autumn Leaves Ticketed stamp set were stamped out onto the white card using Versafine Onyx Black archival pigment ink and turned into tickets using the Aud Designs Ticket tutorial. The tickets were coloured using the Copic sketch markers:
  • Tickets: E51, R20, RV21
and cut apart using a perforating cutter, ripped apart and attached at the corner of the image panel.
