Anya Ink Guest DT - NO Printed Papers!

This week I am the Guest DT over on Anya Ink, the Australian Anya Challenge Blog. Their theme this week is "No Printed Papers!", so if you know me you know I love my printed papers. I tried to just use plain card, but I like nothing I did. So eventually I remembered by Heidi Swapp Damask stamp.....and the idea to create a my own background. I decided to keep it simple and just used some white linen cardstock (the stuff I use to make my cards from) and stamped with Versafine ink. The black layer is Doodlebug Sugar Coated cardstock. I have further embellished with ribbon from Hobby Craft, flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts, a star pin from Tabby Crafts, a spotty bow from Craft Fairy and a sentiment by Craftwork Cards. The base of this card is a Paper Mania scalloped card blank. The main image is one of the Miss Anya Love set and has been coloured with Copics using the following colours...
Skin - E000/E00/E11/R20
Hair - R46
Clothing - C1/C3/C5/C7/C9/R46

Thanks so much to Marcia and the Anya Ink DT for inviting me to be their Guest this's been a blast.
