Anyone for Anya and Sketch and Stash
It's been too long since I entered the Anyone for Anya? Challenge. This week the theme is Easter, or a calendar page for May. So I made an Easter card!
The sketch is from Sketch and Stash Challenge. The requirement is to say which old or new stash has been used - I always find this challenge is a good one for encouraging me to use old stash!
So here goes: I've had the Miss Anya stamp for ages, and isn't she great for Springtime! The papers are Honey and Hugs, and the yellow is from stash. The lace ribbon is from Hobbycraft, the flowers are Wild Orchid, the glittered swirl is a Marianne die and the leaf punch is Woodware. All of those I've used before, but the Easter greeting is from a new stamp from Pink Gem - there wasn't enough room for the whole greeting so I cut it in half.
I distressed the edges of the oval with Shabby Shutters DI, and stamped in the same ink with a very old swirl stamp, then I glittered the swirls. It's supposed to look as though Anya's walking through a meadow in early morning with dew on the ground. Well, it's nice sometimes to make up little stories about these images!
That's about it. Now I'm going to walk to the pillar box to post my nephew's birthday card - what a difference it makes to go out into lovely warm sunshine! It's such a beautiful day, and the leaves are beginning to come out on the silver birches, they look so delicate! I love days like this!!
Anyway, thanks for looking, and have a good day!
luv, Mags x
