Anya Ink Challenge

Anya Ink Challenge - Colour Combo - Blue/Grey/Cream
Another challenge I was directed to by my sister and I would like to pass on my congrats to her, last week she was 2nd in the Anya Ink Challenge with this card. When I first saw this colour combo I did panic - but thankfully I turned to my trusty Basic Grey Collection!! I have used BG Marrakech collection (again - I really love the blues in this collection). Again Anya has been coloured in using Prisma Pencils and Pro-Markers, and the wings have been sparkled with Stampin Up Dazzling Diamonds. I have used my Nestabilities to cut Anya out.
The pins, beads and ribbon is from my stash, the butterfly and flowers are both Prima

The sentiment is one of the new Sale-a-bration stamps from Stampin Up - I've not got this one yet! (but Clare has and I borrowed it!!)

52 Walks - The Layouts

Some of my walks of the year so far - I am keeping to the same style of Layout throughout the the album - which is a Creative Memories album. I am using Stampin Up Kraft Cardstock for the base of the layouts, one sheet of PP and matching cardstock, ribbon, buttons, Prima flowers and American Craft Thickers.
Walk 1 - Bosham Quay. PP, Ribbon and Thickers all American Crafts.
Walk 2 - Snow Day. Bo-Bunny PP, Snowflake ribbon, Karen Foster Sparkle burst brads.

Walk 4 - Oncall (Night Shift at work). Kaisercraft PP, AC ribbon and Thickers.
Walk 5 - Old Bridge Meadow. October Afternoon PP, AC ribbon and Thicker

Most of the American Crafts collection is from the new Blue Skies range - I love this collection and the ribbons are from the same collection - it is working really well with my walk photos. Much of this collection, papers, rub-ons, stickers and thickers are available from QVC for a good price. The ribbons and much more (buttons, brads etc) are available from Sarah's Cards - one of the biggest stockist of American Crafts. All the buttons and Prima Flowers are from my stash.
