Anya Ink & Sketch Saturday

12 Nov

It has been so hot in Melbourne this week that I have struggled to find any mojo at all. I find when I sit down to make a card I struggle to come up with something. My great intentions of getting Christmas cards made the other day fell to the wayside as my book and the fan won me over. Last night sitting down to watch tv I realized there was absolutely nothing on (and I had finished my book) so off I went to my stamping corner and started. I decided to tackle this week’s Anya Ink challenge and the Sketch Saturday’s challenge.  Anya Inks challenge is to use Blue and Orange and here is the Sketch from Sketch Saturday:


I nearly finished the card last night but was really struggling to embellish it. So I ended up putting it aside and going to bed.

 After waking up this morning and walking Lizzie to school I came home feeling really refreshed so with a clear mind I sat down to finish the card. Here is the finished product:


I really did not want to embellish my card again with flowers so I looked at the bottom of my stamping stuff to discover my butterfly punch. I forgot how much I love this punch.  You can see I ended up embellishing the card using a butterfly and some wire. I have tried to make the butterfly look like it is in flight.


I know this card does not contain a lot of orange (only the bow in the hat), but as I went through my stuff last night I discovered that I did not have too much orange papers laying about. There is blue with the lace and on the underside of the butterfly. The patterned paper is also a bluey-green colour. It looked more blue  in the light last night. I hope this will be ok.

So there you have it my latest creation. Think I may take Robbie out to get a milkshake soon, the luxury of living where we do is there are so many places to choose from.

I hope you all have a great day.

Until next time xoxo

Supplies: Cardstock – Rose Red & Vanilla from Stampin Up. Basic Grey Patterned Paper, sun dress from the lemonade collection. Nestabilities-circles and scallops. The Greeting Farm Miss Anya from the Miss Anya Dressy collection, Copic Markers. Fiskars paper punch and Paper Shapers Butterfly Punch.

    what a sweet little Anya, I love the way her legs are dangling over the edge. The butterfly is a fab embelishment, and the wire flightpath is the perfect touch! I am having the same mojo issues, I think it packed up and left in the heat and I have got nothing done all week despite several attempts 🙂
