Green and Purple Sitting Love Miss Anya

Here is the card I made for my mum earlier last month. I really love this set of Miss Anya stamps, and this particular one is lovely to colour.

I am also entering this card into a couple of blog challenges:

The Sitting Love Miss Anya image from The Greeting Farm was stamped using Memento Tuxedo Black dye ink and coloured using Copic sketch markers:
  • Hair: E21, E35, E57
  • Skin: E00, E02, E21
  • Bows: RV21, RV34, V12, V15
  • Dress: G85, YG67, RV21, RV34, V12, V15
  • Shoes: G85, YG67
  • Shadow: BV00, BV23
The image was cut into a rectangle and the corners were rounded using the large XCut corner rounder punch. A purple mat was cut for the image panel using the Labels 8 die from Nestabilities, and, keeping the die in place, the panel was coloured using the Tim Holtz Dusty Concord distress ink.

The green patterned papers from the HOTP Earth's Palette Creative Cardmaker's Pack were pieced together to make a rectangular panel. A strip of the purple paper from the same paper pack was punched along both edges with the Martha Stewart Doily Lace punch.  A length of narrow green organza ribbon was knotted and attached across the punched purple strip which was then attached across the join of the two green papers.

This was then matted onto a panel of the purple card.

The rectangular sentiment panel was stamped using the 'Birthday Wishes' stamp from the See D's Celebration Messages stamp set and the Versafine Imperial Purple archival pigment ink. The smallest Labels 8 shape was die cut from purple card, coloured with the Dusty Concord ink and the sentiment panel matted in the centre.

A purple Prima flower was added to the panel using a pale green Papermania gem brad before it was added to the card blank.

Anita's 3D Gloss was then added over the hearts on the dress and hair bows of the Miss Anya image.
