Good evening fellow lovely crafters, hope you have all had a fabby explosive weekend lol...... sorry for the pun but I just couldn't resist he he hee!
Right less jibber-jabber & onto tonights card. I have decided to try & get through all of my neglected stamps, whilst searching through I have found all of my Anya stamps.....I have neglected them sooo much infact except for 1 I have not made a card with any of them!!! How darn shocking is that??
Well tonight peeps for your eyes onlyyyyyyyyyyyyy....la la la laaaaaa (sorry getting carried away wit the singin) here is 'Flapper Anya'..........
I absolutely love the sepia look & I thought this Anya was the perfect stamp to create this look with & also I am sooooo in love with these papers......ssssshhhh dont tell hubby!!!
For this card I followed the sketch over at Anyone For Anya, this is the 1st time I'm entering their challenge. My 1st Anya card I ever did was actually the 1st card I made & the 1st time I had used Promarkers & stamps back in March.....I then started blogging a few weeks after....its been nearly 8 months already...gosh!!!
For the charm I cut a small oval piece of paper from the patterned paper used for matting & then glued it inside the charm & then covered it in glossy accents & put it aside to dry. I think these look fab & there are quite a few things you can do with them, once dry I just attached to a foam pad to raise it up a little on the card. For Anya's hairband I attached a cream feather & a smaller black feather.
Paper edge has been distressed with my scissors cus sometimes I can get a better effect than with the distresser they have then been glittered up with Diamond Dust stickles. All layers that Anya stands on have been inked with 'Vintage Photo' distress ink. A Flapper girl needs her sparkle so Copper stickles have been added to her dress & some on the backing.......
Flower were also edged with Vintage Photo & the middle rose has touches of Copper stickles also. The tag is a set of digi stamps I won I just printed it off, inked the edges in the same ink & attached a sparkly gem & adhered it to the card with a foam pad.......it says 'To The Birthday Girl'.
I am quite pleased with the card.....I think lol. I certainly love the stamp & papers lol.
