Club Anya DT- Preview 1

Hello friends!

Weekend is here again, and I'm relieved that Autumn is very near now! We had some thunder and rain last night, and the air is fresher during the day.. at least you feel up to it to do chores and stuff :) It gets so hot here in Summer, that it drains all your energy. So now I do prefer Winter with all it gets with it :)

As I told you earlier this week, we are starting previews at Club Anya today. There are some cute and lovely stamps coming out on the 15th, so we want to show them to you.. our Greeting Farm fans. Marie made such a lovely job again this month! I'm sure you'll like them!

Today I want to show you our first set: Cute Troops.
They are gorgeous, two stamps in the set, Anya and Ian in troop uniforms, and sentiments to go with them. They are so sweet, I decided to use them together, masking Ian and stamping Anya just behind. I also used the sentiment "teamwork", which is part of the set.

. Sketch ued is from A Spoon Full of Sugar challenge.

My girls will love this card, as they were Girl Guides two years ago. I used to love going to their parades and marches etc.. They looked so smart with the uniforms, plaited hair and black shoes! :))

In fact I used their uniform to inspire me for the colours I use. you can see the shirt and scarf in this photo :) Teal shirt, with orange badges, then blue skirt and three coloured scarf: navy blue, white and light blue.

Aren't they cute?! :)) I hope you like them as much as I do, and that you pop over to Club Anya. There you will find the official post with all the fantastic DT examples and release party deets, so brace yourself for more cuteness. This release will be my last one as Guest Designer at Club €Anya! Two months have passed so soon. I hope I as good enough, and that I did justice to these lovely stamps.

This image was coloured mainly with Distress Inks, then I made some final touches with Copics :) I like them combined. DP is Basic Grey Two Scoops, and the orange background paper is Lime Rickey. The sentiment was stamped on white cardstock. I played a bit with Labels 1 nesties, to achieve this effect. I was going to make it like a coat of arms shape, but it would have taken a lot of space.

Then I crumbled the paper, straightened it out again and distressed it with Antique Linen and Frayed Burlap Distress inks. Some Prima flowers and Stickles, black dewdrops and branch punch-outs for some embellishing.. and voila! Finally I decided to stamp two florishes in the top corner.. I hope it wasn't a wrong desicion, but now it's done!

An inside view.

Have a good day, and don't forget to come tomorrow for another lovely preview; you won't be disappointed ;)

Thanks for looking

My Goodness, Rosette! I am always flabbergasted at the beauty of your cards! I just can't believe all of the gorgeous details you put into each work of art (which they definitely are!) And your coloring is SO dreamy! :-)Traci
