Club Anya Holiday Blog Hop

I'm so excited to participate in my first Club Anya blog hop!! What fun, and a holiday/festive one at that!!
If you're starting here with my blog, be sure to go back to the Club Anya blog to see the list of participants as the list was so long they thought it would be easier to just have the list on the Club Anya blog.
I don't know about you, but I can't wait for the release of new Anya's and Miss Anya's tomorrow!! Fun!!
Okay, enough yap yap...onto my creation~~
I didn't really follow any of the categories as I wasn't in this to win a prize, just for fun so I just created a holiday card!

I had a heck of a time photographing this card! It is dark green cardstock, not black and it really does sparkle!


supplies:
What I did:
I started by stamping Miss Anya onto my cardstock with memento ink and then masked off her feet and stamped an A Muse essential oval to give her something to stand on. I colored the image with my copics. I love Randi's work, her coloring is amazing, and I love how she adds touches of sparkle to the hair so I did that with Miss Anya too. I used my glaze pen on her shoes. I also love how Pam gives her Anya's eyeshadow, so I attempted to give my Miss Anya a bit of sparkly peach eyeshadow with a copic glitter pen. hehe! I used a sketch from SCS, SC193 for the inspiration for my layout.
 
To finish the card I picked papers, picked embellishments and then added stickles to the flower and snowflake.
One trick I discovered, I know I read it on a blog but can't remember who it was to give credit to, was to spray your paper lightly with water or rubbing alcohol before using the sizzix texturz plates or in this case, the Fiskars texture plate in your machine. Works so much better!!

As for your Stamp Catalogue...girl that is the best idea! After Christmas I am going to do just that. I forget all the time what I do have, so I seem to always reach for the same thing! Thank-you for sharing that with us! Awesome idea!
