Anyone For Anya? #1 Sugar & Spice

This is the first card I have made this week – am starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel with this horrible bug that I have and I have sooooooooooo missed making something. I chose the Miss Anya Snow as I have already stamped up a whole sheet of them so it was all set to get colouring.
The first challenge over at Anyone for Anya? is “Sugar & spice and all things nice” and I thought this fit rather nicely as Spice is one of the promarker colours I used to colour her in. I’ve been playing with colour combinations that I wouldn’t normally use and for one actually picked the papers before I started colouring, which always helps lol
 DSCF2798 copy_resizeImage: Miss Anya Snow, coloured with promarkers; Blush for her skin; Primrose, Vanilla, Mustard & Raw Sienna for her hair; Coral & Spice for her coat & boots; Meadow & Apple for all the trim; Meadow, Apple, Grass, Spice & Terracotta for her scarf & tights.
Glitter card is DCWV, paper is Basic Grey – Porcelain edged with Martha Stewart Doily Lace punch, mint card is core’dinations, cut with oval scallop nesties in the cuttlebug and also used for the ash branch punchies, flowers are all papermania (I added coral promarker to the smaller flower), the brad is papermania, ribbon is Trimcraft Smirk and the greeting is from my stash.
As always, here’s Miss Anya’s close-up shot…
