Birthday Anya

Hello there, happy Thursday! I am currently taking part in Kathy Racoosin's 30 Day Colouring challenge. For this, I decided to try and maybe use some older images that I haven't coloured in a while. With this in mind, I busted out Birthday Anya 3 by The Greeting Farm and was completely inspired by a card made by Kristina Werner.

I stamped the image on a panel of white cardstock that had been cut using the ME Femme Frames die (yes I am obsessed!). I then coloured the image using Copic Markers, adding some polka dots with a white Signo Gel pen. I stamped the sentiment, from the Clearly Besotted Sentimental Type set, below in black ink.

The panel was adhered to an A2 card base, that has a sheet of paper from the Lawn Fawn Let's Polka Mon Amie pad adhered to the front, with foam tape. I finished off by adding a little clear Wink of Stella pen and Glossy Accents to the hair clip and cherries on the cake.
Here are the links to what I have used on the card. Please click the picture to be taken to where I purchased it.

COPIC MARKERS: Skin - E15, E13, E11, E00, E000, BV01, R20. Hair - E29, E27, E25, E23. Dress/Hair Bands/Shoes - G46, G19, G12, YG46, YG45, YG41. Cake - E33, E31, E50, RV11, RV10, RV000. Ground - W4, W3, W2, W1.

I usually have a card design in mind first when I stamp and colour, but this time I just coloured and worked out the rest later. It was quite nice to do it this way! How do you usually do it? Many thanks for visiting me today.
