Rain Anya


Rain Anya is appropriate, my Tuesday class were going to make this card but because of the bad weather I had to cancel.

I stamped and paper pieced her and then coloured in with copic markers. Slight boob I scanned in the image and printed onto my card before I did the colouring in but we won’t mention that. Also printed a verse onto the card.

It doesn’t show very well on the card but I also heat embossed her little jacket because I wanted it to look like a plastic jacket.

With a versamark pen I coated over the jacket and added embossing powder then heated. Did this three times and it does look like a wet look jacket but the photo doesn’t do it justice. Mat and layered her onto a nestie and add two lines of faux stitching.

Added some beautiful wool to the edge of the card which Patricia bought and she kindly shared some with me (have to try and buy some more because it is gorge).

Punched two large flowers and then fixed a green flower (from my stash) to the middle of the two with a butterfly brad. Coloured the brad with a copic because the colour was wrong. Added liquid pearls to the centre of the flower.

Used a MS punch and a piece of mesh to the edge of the card. I stuck the mesh to the back of the nestie and just left an overhang showing this way it added more dimension to the card.
