First Miss Anya Dressy


Wow I just love these stamps from the Greeting Farm I know they have been out for a while but I have only just found them and I am hooked already. Made my first card with Snow Anya and now this one is from the dressy set.

Pictured her in my head as a Spring type girl especially with the hat and so all the colours reflect this. It’s also probably because the weather is so dreadful that I am wishing for Spring already and we haven’t even had Christmas.

Stamped her onto white card stock with Memento tuxedo black, coloured in with Copics and cut out with a nestie. Also stamped lots of little flowers around her and the bee on her hat is a set of little stamps I bought from Tesco’s. From the same set there is a stamp with lots of little swirly dots on it, so used this to match up the image with the butterfly and drew a yellow line through all the dots. Edged her hat with some Sakura glaze and also her shoes. Two tiny little gems were added to her shoes and also the middle of her blouse.

Now the interesting part I stitched lots of little buttons around the edge of the card stock, wasn’t sure how so many would work but they look great.

The flower is made from ribbon and wait for it…. lots of pearly doodles added, as you have already guessed, I just think these are the bees knees. Paper flower was added to the top of the ribbon and an embellishment that looks like a jelly tot added to the centre.

A friend of mine bought this neat little butterfly – it’s a double die cut – and we have all cut out some butterflies. Needlesstosay I didn’t have the right colour so, just got out the copics again and matched up with what I think is a passable match for the card and then added more pearly doodles. The green background paper is a K & Co and the white is ordinary copy paper punched out with the MS around the corner shell punch. Chalked around the edges and also along the line of dots. Put ric rac along the bottom to finish.
