Fleur Anya

Hi everyone! Happy Friday! Is it Spring yet? I can't tell because we just got another 6 inches of snow yesterday. A few days ago I saw and heard a few Harley's on the road though, so I'm a little confused.

 I just wanted to post this cute little card using a Greeting Farm stamp called Fleur Anya. A few weeks ago my bff, Jan came over with her collection of cling stamps, and I stayed up through the night stamping up about 30 sheets of my Copic paper with images.(Jan lasted till about 2:00 A.M and crashed) Little Fleur Anya was one of the 60 images I stamped. Funny how when I was stamping most of  Jan's images I was thinking to myself...I'm for sure buying this stamp for my collection!! And I don't know why because out of my hundreds of mounted and unmounted stamps I own I've rarely stamped the same image more than once or twice. I'm thinking that out of all my stamps more than 50% have never even been stamped once!.  I just find my style changes so much from the time I'm collecting certain stamps to when I actually start creating with them. This year I'm going to try to stamp every single stamp I own! Plus all the new ones I'm sure to buy! (insert delusional laugh here) Well they do make a great display in my craft room and are great drawer fillers :) I'll post a few pictures so you can see what I mean.

I just started taking an online Copic color classes with Suzanne J Dean over at Color Me Creative Classroom and this week she's celebrating the 2nd year of her site with a birthday party bash. Lots of games and prizes to be won. The gand prize being a Sizzix Vagabond machine. Yeah, that would be sweet!! One of the birthday events was to do a sketch challenge so this is the card I made using the sketch that was provided.
I thought little Anya was going to be too little for one of my regular 6x6 cards so I decided to put her on a standard 4A size card.(4 1/4x5 1/2) Wow was I wrong.  That little body is really an illusion because her head took up half the card.  I used papers from Teresa Collins Canvas Fabrications. At first I had colored all the flowers in Anya's hair orange and didn't know how I was going to pull in the turquoise color that was in the paper, so I stamped out another image and colored the flowers with orange and teal, cut it out and pasted it over the original stamped image. She's so sweet she just puts a smile on my face!

This is how I store my wood mounted stamps...the chest of drawers are chockablock full of SU stamp sets. All double layers.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:

Scrapbook Sisters Anything goes #76

Copics used:
Dress:V12,V15,V17(then added some RV's to match the paper better)
