Anyone For Anya - Colour Combo Guest DT card

The challenge this week at Anyone For Anya is a colour combo which is 

I love these colours together!!

This is my final week of a 4 week guest DT spot & I've really enjoyed being part of the team at AFA. Please do try & join us this week.

The papers are from Dovecraft & are a hint of pink so perfect for this challenge.
The image is Anya from The Greetings Farm bought from Tracey at Dies To Die For. I've coloured her with Copics & have used the shades of warm grey (W1,3,5 & 7) instead of the blacks as they are not as harsh.
The LO is an old sketch LO that I turn to time & time again. I have included one of my signature flowers (note to self - must make more of these!!) & the black lace has been attached using mini staples. A bit of bling & a sentiment from Craftwork Cards to finish off & job done!

I sat little Anya out in the garden for her picture taking as it's been another gloreous weekend here in Leeds.

Thanks for looking.

Anyone For Anya - Anything Goes

Here is my third DT card for the Anyone For Anya Challenge blog.

This weeks challenge at Anything For Anya is 'Anything Goes' so I decided to go to town on techniques I haven't used for a while.

Firstly the style of card, an easel card, so effective!! I've only made an easel card once before & as I sell my cards it's not a card I make very often because once it's in it's celaphane jacket it's really hard to tell how much work has gone in to the card & as the sentiment is very often on the base, the top doesn't 'sell' the card (if you know what I mean??) so it's very often more trouble than it's worth.

So I decided to make this card for one of my daughters friends whose birthday it was yesterday so hopefully by the time you read this she will have figured out how the card stands up lol!!!

I've used the lovely Anya with shopping which is one of my favorite Anya images as all my girls & their friends love to shop so it's an image I use quite alot of!

I've paper-pieced her outfit, which is another technique I haven't used for a while, and coloured the rest of the image with copics.

The paper is from my stash & as it was really the focal point of the card I've only used a little bit of ribbon on the top of the card so as not to cover it up completely.

The ribbon is from Stampin Up as is the cardstock. I've printed the ticket on the PC & the sentiment is one of the little Studio G stamps.

Thanks for looking.
