Miss Anya is HERE!!!!


OH, I've been waiting and waiting (not so patiently) for my Miss Anyas to arrive!!! There are so many little kiddie stamps on the market but so few teenage ones....until Miss Anya arrived!!! She SO reminds me of my Emileigh....the shopping queen!!! (Don't know where she gets it!! *blush*) I ordered mine from All That Scraps but they are sold out right now. I do know that The Town Scrapper is expecting an order sometime soon though.

So I sat down and got to play with my new Miss Anyas AND some awesome new Copic paper!! I actually got this paper when I was in Toronto a couple of weeks ago but this is the first chance I've had to actually sit down and experiment with it. Well, let me tell you, it's AWESOME!! It's thicker than the Wausau that I am used to and it's more like a watercolour paper in a way. You don't have to be as careful with your colouring because the paper soaks up the ink right away and it doesn't have a chance to bleed as easily. Also the colours of the ink seem to be a truer colour and not quite as stark as on the Wausau. Anyhoo, if you'd like to try it (it's quite a bit more expensive than the Wausau), it's Canson 150lb Drawing Paper and here is a link to where I got it: https://www.currys.com/product.htm?Product=C7022194&Source=Category&Category=A143B000863

So I decided that this sassy shopping Anya needed to be dressed in purples so I pulled out my as yet untouched 6x6 pad of Eva dp by Basic Grey. The 6x6 card base is Perfect Plum and the accent cardstock is Pale Plum. The wonderful layout is from this week's Friday Sketchers challenge and it worked perfectly with this gal!

I used Eva brads and attached Prima hydrangeas and used some plum satin ribbon from Club Wed and hung a little purse charm using silver cord. The sentiment is from an AmyR sentiments set and was perfect for this gal!




I tell you, the blending was so easy with this paper and there were no stark lines where the colours met. I was also able to do a little cloudy shading around her sides about halfway up, near her hair. It might be so light you can't even see it in the pics, but it looks fab in real life. I used my colorless blender for one of the first times and it actually worked with this paper! I'm so happy!

Anyhooooo, it's my pal Andrea's birthday today and I'm going over to her house to play ALL DAY!!! yaaaaaaaaaay!!! I've packed up all my Copics and stamped a bunch of images and brought some yummy papers to be inspired with!! Hope you have a wonderful Thursday!!!

Mwah!!!
