New Anyas

A little while ago, Marie at Pink Poison had a contest on her blog to make as many PP cards as we could. I really wanted to make a giant stack of cards, but life got in the way and not wanting to make slapped-together cards just to make a lot, I ended up with only 6. BUT, I'm really happy with how they all turned out, and that's what really matters to me! I wanted to share a couple I made with my new Anya images.

I found this cute heart and skull paper from Sassafrass Lass in my stash in a kit I got forever ago and thought it was perfect to go with Rockstar Anya. I colored her with Copics (including an extra guitar with arms attached for dimension) and accented her hairband with some Stickles. Then I cut her out, added the extra guitar, and put a ton of foam dots all over the back. The letter stickers also came from that same kit (it makes me SO happy to use up old stuff!!). To finish her off, I just did a bunch of sewing with black thread to frame her.

I've been wanting to use a Making Memories spiral journaling book for a while, but just couldn't find the right image to match until I got Teacher Anya. I traced the shape of the patterned paper onto my card base and cut it to match. Then I got the idea to just do black and cream with some red pops so I stamped her on cream cardstock and left her uncolored. I stamped an extra apple, colored with Copics and added some dimensional glaze, then stuck on with foam tape for dimension. She is also entirely cut out and stuck on with foam tape.

The Hello stamp is from the Lucky Bunnies set. I finished the card off with some red buttons and red velvet rick-rack held on with staples to complete the school look.

Thanks for looking and I hope you like them!!
