Hi everyone! Madge here for a wonderful Wednesday once again.
I’ve chosen to use a stamp from Your Next Stamp called “Anika from Holland”. My Mom was Flemish, and I remember her telling me of her father getting very angry with her for breaking her wooden shoes…….isn’t it funny what sticks in your mind? My Mom also had carrot red hair (natural), so I had some fun with this little image.
The challenge for the month of July at One Crazy Stamper is a recipe challenge which is 1 image, 2 designer papers and 3 embellishments for a chance to win a gift certificate at One Crazy Stamper….. however I mixed the recipe up a wee bit by using 1 image, 3 designer papers, and 2 embellishments………. I never have been one to use the same ingredients for a recipe. lol
I started out stamping Anika onto Xpress-It Blend Cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Black ink, coloured her with Copic Markers. I also added a little pattern to her dress with my Copic Multiliner. Spellbinders Oval dies were used to die cut the image and the mat. The Designer papers are from Bo Bunny, and the mats used are from SU. A Martha Stewart punch was used for the heart border. Two buttons were added from my stash, adding additional coloring added with a Sakura Stardust Glitter pen.
Hope you like my little "Anika".
