This card was also a labor of love. During the recent 30 day coloring challenge hosted by Kathy Racoosin, I colored up this sweet Holiday Anya 6 from The Greeting Farm. I did two versions. One stamped with black and the other with Inkon3 fadeout ink. I really wanted to do some no line coloring. I'm not going lie, it's hard for me! I am however pleased as punch with how she turned out!
Here are the Copic colors I used:
Hair-B02,23,24 & 28
Collar/Shirt tails-T1, 3, 5
Mug-BG32, 34, 23
Marshmallow-E42 & colorless blender
Skin-E00, 11, 13, 21
Dots on mug-white gel pen
After I was done coloring, I added Nuvo aqua shimmer in glitter gloss (love this stuff!). As soon as it was dry I went ahead and cut her out with scissors. I decided to leave a small white border all the way around. For the little section between her feet I used a craft knife.
I pulled out three patterned papers from the Doodlebug Frosty Friends paper pad. I have been trying to actually use my patterned papers instead of hoarding them. It's SO hard!! I just want to admire the paper all day long. LOL! I cut the dotted aqua/green paper with an oval die from MFT Stamps. The striped paper I cut out using a rectangle die from Mama Elephant. The white paper is cut out with another rectangle die from the same Mama Elephant die set.
I dug through my colored cardstock collection and found a pretty purple that matched so I cut an A2 sized cardbase. I glued each piece in place and added Holiday Anya on top. I didn't use any foam tape for any of the layers. Then I stamped the Mugs & Kisses sentiment that comes with Holiday Anya in a gray ink onto white paper. I didn't have quite the right shade of blue so I took my B28 copic to a piece of white paper to make my own! I layered it with the sentiment and this was popped up with foam tape.
I though some sequins would add some extra sparkle but I ran across these assorted snowflakes that I got as a freebie gift from Lawn Fawn. I glued them around wherever I thought they looked right. There you have it. I am quite enamored with this card. Hope you like it too!
