Blue and Yellow Pinafore Dressy Miss Anya

Here is one of my latest creations - I made it for a friend who I haven't seen for a while but we manage to keep in touch via the wonders of Facebook!!!

I am also entering this card into a few blog challenges:

The Pinafore Dressy Miss Anya image, from The Greeting Farm, was stamped using Memento Tuxedo Black dye ink and coloured using Copic markers:
  • Hair: E21, Y08, Y17
  • Shoes/Bows: B41, B45
  • Dress: B41, B45, Y17
  • Socks: B41
  • Skin: E00, E02, E21
The image was then cut out.

Mats for the image were cut using the Nestabilities Labels 8 dies. The larger blue panel was embossed using the Cuttlebug Textile embossing folder. Brilliance Moonlight White pigment ink was then rubbed over the embossed detail to highlight it and ColorBox Amber Clay Fluid Chalk was added over the top.

The coloured image was attached onto the yellow panel and then the blue.

The sentiment, from the Woodware Jane's Script Sentiments stamp set, was stamped up along the edge of the yellow panel using the Versafine Majestic Blue archival pigment ink.

A strip of the yellow and blue flourish paper from the HOTP Earth's Palette Creative Cardmaker's Pack was matted onto a strip of the yellow card. This was in turn matted onto a panel of the dark blue mottle paper from the same paper pack and a larger panel of the yellow card.

Light blue card candy from Craftwork Cards were added in the corners of the blue panel.

ETA: This card was awarded Top 5 by The Scrapmaster's Paradise Colour Combo Blog Challenge
