...Anya Fashion Show Entry

This is my submission for the "Anya Fashion Show" Contest over at The Greeting Farm Blog. I used the sets "Dress Me" and "Wardrobe #1" to create this particular card. I started with a Sahara Sand Cardstock base, the matted each additional layer with Bravo Burgundy Cardstock (I added a layer of Sahara Sand Cardstock to the focal image also). The patterned papers are from the Parisian Summer Designer Series Paper pack. I pierced the striped and focal panels using a Mat Pack and Paper Piercer. I also added a scalloped panel to the side of the focal panel that was punched with the Martha Stewart Doily Lace Edge Border Punch. A piece of 5/8" Light Pink Ribbon was added around the panels, and three Build-a-Brads were added down the left side of the focal panel.

I stamped the Anya image in Graphite Black Brilliance Ink, then embossed it with Clear Embossing Powder and a Heat Gun. She was colored with Copic Sketch Markers, then Diamond Stickles were added to parts of her dress, her eyeshadow, and her headband. To create her chiffon-looking dress, I stamped and embossed the dress on vellum. I flipped the image over in order to color the back side with a light pink Copic marker. Once it had dried completely, I used Vellum Tape to attach the dress to a piece of Whisper White Cardstock. I then cut out the dress, and attached it to Anya using SNAIL Adhesive. I simply adore the way it turned out! The completed Anya was cut out, and popped up off of the panel using Dimensionals.

That's it for today! I am still feeling kind of icky, so I will probably pile up on the couch with the hubby for a relaxing afternoon of watching movies. Thanks for stopping by, and I will see you all again tomorrow. Until then...
