Anya at the Museum and She is Blonde


I made this for the Club Anya Sketch Challenge #1. My first thought was how in the world will I make something look cohesive with squares and circles, but once I had my paper picked out it all fell together. This piece of double sided 12x12 won the audition for this sketch. I thought the center rectangle would be perfect to feature something busy and I thought the section of paper I used looked like a painting. Hence the title. Can you believe all the DP on this is from one sheet? Even the butterfly was cut from the DP. The paper I used is a new line from K & Company. The half circles have a neat texture to them almost like rubber, Anya's pearls are done with liquid pearl paint, and she is colored with copics. I think this is one of my favorites.

Okay, my comments are not nearly ladylike enough for this card, so begging forgiveness in advance....

This card is friggin' awesome!!!! I love it! You must tell what colors you used for the blond hair. I discovered that I really need new copics for blonds, but haven't a clue which to get.
Love the layout and all of the patterns and colors - beautiful!
