Christmas In July at Anya Ink

The new challenge at Anya Ink is Christmas in July.
The DT Girls have posted such beautiful creations! Have a look!

Bizzy Becs has very generously sponsored this challenge and has put together a brilliant pack of goodies for the winner!

This is the card that I posted.

As always I have used X-Press It Blending Card and my amazing Copics to colour this gorgeous CC Design Santa Emma.

I have been having a lot of fun with blending grays and reds lately!
My favourite greys: C-1, C-3. C-5 & C-7 ....
and my favourite red combo at the moment is R32, R35 & R37!
....and ofcourse what would a card be without a LOT of SPICA!!!

So, Merry Christmas in July to you all .... and don't forget to go to Anya Ink and enter the challenge!!!

Have a great weekend .... and Happy Colouring

Using Your "0" on COPICOZ

People are often blown away when they realise that you don't need to use the Colourless Blender to blend! You can blend perfectly well without it.

So what can we use the Colourless Blender for? Have a look at COPICOZ to see three great uses for your 0!

Happy Colouring ....

Make a Scene for Anya Ink!

The latest challenge at Anya Ink is to Make a Scene!

I had lots of fun creating this scene, using CC Design stamps on X-Press It Blending Card. This blending card is actually great to use as cardstock as well as blending card as it is really sturdy...and it made a great base for this card.

I used so many colour combos to make up this card...and almost all of my Spica colours to add some shimmer! The cutest addition to this card is the little flowers and leaves on the tree...each one was individually made, glittered, rhinestoned and glued on....CRAZY....I know! I obviously had a little too much spare time on my hands this week!!!! (c;

Have a great weekend!

Happy Colouring ...... Mandi xxx
