Anyone for Anya? - Week 8 - "Paper Piecing"

This week on the Anyone for Anya? Challenge Blog our theme is "Paper Piecing". We want to see you paper piece part of your main image. For my card I have used a Miss Anya from the Dressy set and one of the My Guy Ian stamps and I have paper pieced Anya's dress and apron and Ian's shirt. The rest of the image has been coloured with Copics using the following colours...
Skin - E000/E00/E11/R20
Hair (Her) - E50/E51/E53/E33
Hair (Him) - E31/E33/E35
Clothes (Her)- Y28/E50/E51/E53
Clothes (Him) - E53/YG00/Y28
Shoes (Her) - R39
Shoes (Him) - R39/E31
The papers are also by The Greeting Farm "Sunny Glen" and I have layered them with some Bazzill cardstock. The flowers are a mix of different Prima ones and I have attached them with a WRMK brad and a spacer. Finally I have finished off with some random bling and ribbon from my stash. There is also a heart punched using my new Stampin' Up heart punch (the three heart one). The sentiment is by Craftwork Cards and I have again layered it with my SU oval punch and also the designer label punch. In Anya's hair I have also added some Sakura clear glitter gel pen for a little added sparkle...a girl needs a little sparkle in her life.

This card was also made using the sketch this week over on Sketch Saturday...huge thanks to the DT ladies for their sketch and inspiration.

Be sure to come over and join in the fun...and of course see what the rest of the fabulous DT have come up with.
