Anyas have landed

My 2nd post in one day but I just had to come tell you that Silly Monkeys have just had their deliveries of Greeting Farm stamps (including this new cutie and restocks on sets like the 'Miss Anyas') so you best be quick if there were any in particular you wanted.

Mine also landed on my doorstep today (thanks sooo much Bryony, love them all ;)) and I just had to ink up this cutie. It was a super quick card by my standards too (apart from waiting for the glue on her glittery acetate wings to dry) as I found the perfect dp so didn't need to phaff with layout or adding much. The metal butterfly charm was just to hide a bit of a doodling mess on the flourish LOL but I have realised it means I can enter it into this week's ABC challenge, 'M for metallic', so a bonus haha
  • Images: 'Flutter Anya' from Silly Monkeys. Sentiment from a Hero Arts set
  • Colouring: Anya stamped twice. First on card with Memento ink and coloured with Copics and cut out. Then I stamped her onto acetate with black Stazon ink and added glitter on the reverse (this way you don't have to worry about going over the lines and then the glitter won't get everywhere once you turn it around) to her wings and skirt which I then cut out and added on top of the card version of her, so it's very 3D IRL. She has then been stuck onto card with 3d foam but it looks flat in photo!
  • DP: BG 'Urban Prairie'
  • Others: Just added scallop border with a MS punch, some distressing and faux stitching around the edges and couple of flourishes from an EK success punch plus 1 metal charm (my local papermill store had bunch of metal charms on clearance £1.25/pack with about 9 or so in them had some other cute themes too like beach, fashion etc)

O.K, sorry for the Greeting Farm stamp overload (just realised most of my posts this week have been GF) I'll try and use some other brands for my next post o.k (not like I don't have others LOL but you know what it's like when you have a new favourite toy!)?!
