couple of challenges with 'Xmas Anya'

Wanted to try out a white inkpad I got from Elzybells today and loved the whiteness of it (have others which just don't stamp out that crisp on dark cardstock)! So anyway, that's how this card started as I didn't want to waste my test piece so it ended up being used as my background paper (I added holographic embossing powder to it for extra glitter) to this cute Anya stamp from Silly Monkeys.
Looked around for inspiration and have taken the sketch over on Fri sketchers and seeing as it's Anya thought I'd play along to 'Anyone for Anya' which this weeks wants to see 'fakes'. On mine, I've got fake stitching, fake brads (little circles cut out with regular hole punch which was then shaped with embossing tool and glued on) and fake fur trim on her outfit using 'fluffy stuff' which has added glamour dust added before blasting with heatgun to make it extra puffy. All the snowflakes down the left are raised on foampads but it comes across flat in photo!


  • Stamps: Anya from 'Xmas sweeties' set, snowflakes used on background paper and sentiment circle from a Papermania stamp duo set.
  • Colouring: Copics
  • Paper: tiny bit MME - just the stripe piece used for the big snowflake and the punched out border behind her, red & brown cardstock plus some white glitter paper
  • Tools: MS doily lace trim deep edger punch, large snowflake and medium snowflake punches, couple of circle punches and a good old office hole punch for the fake brads
  • Others: woodware 'white fluffy stuff', glamour dust, white gel pen for faux stitching

    Thanks for stopping by & have a good night/day depending where you are. Happy Thanksgiving for tomorrow, to all my US readers :)
