Winter Anya 3 in 1.


Just a quickie as I should be getting ready for work & helping the boys get ready for school, but obviously blogging is far more important, LOL! This is quite a departure for me. My first card using Promarkers! I really enjoyed the challenge. My shading is not up to standard yet, but I hope to improve in time. The layout is from the fab sketch at Sketch Saturday, which fits rather well with the challenge at Passion for Promarkers, which is any choice of colour, to use 3 different shapes & to use ribbon. Finally the theme at Anyone for Anya this week is 'You are Anya'. You should chose the Anya image that best represents you. Unfortunately I do not have the Laundry stamp. I always have a tonne of ironing to do! I chose this little lady instead. I can't pretend to be this chic, but I love the winter on a nice crisp, dry winter's day & in my dreams, this would be how I would like to look.
I am really pleased with how this turned out, though as I say there is plenty of room for improvement, but it's nice to be able to use different shades I can't get with my distress inks. FYI the DPs are Penny Lane by MME & I thought the circles were reminiscent of snowflakes & quite appropriate for winter.
Well I hope you like it. Thanks for looking.
Big Hugs,
Andie xx
