Anki's Sweethearts - Emilia

Happy Saturday!! Whew! Well between major issues I was having with Blogger, all the electrical storms of last night and this morning and our family outing, I am amazed I can finally get this card up and posted. But here it is at last. :)

This little darling is called Emilia, and she's one of Anki's Sweethearts, a stamp line exclusive to Susana's Custom Art and Card Design. She's definitely a sweetheart! I love her ankle-strap shoes.

Extra anticipation with this creation as well - I am able to share this card on my blog after weeks of waiting! It was published in Scrapbook News and Review in the June issue; I was their Guest Cardmaker for the month and this is one of four featured projects I created for the article. What a treat that was!

The colors here are Elegant Eggplant, Soft Sky and Baja Breeze. Of course you see some Basic Grey Wisteria in there too, one of my favorites in the BG lines! What this card really needed was some Flower Soft for her little bouquet, but I didn't have any the right color. :( Now that the new POLAR WHITE is out (Susana haaaaaaaaaaaaaaas some!!!), I think I'll try making my own custom color. That will make me REALLY happy!

All the standard deets for this one, I stamped her in Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored with Copic markers. Did some highlighting with the Ranger white gel pen when all the coloring was done. Cut and matted the sky section using Petite Oval Nestabilities and added the white dots with the gel pen too. Cuttlebugged the background piece and the circle behind the main layer, and Kaisercraft pearl accents all around. Viola!

In other news - Susana has gotten more new products in! Check out the NEW Robin's Nest Tear Drops, just released Pink Cat Fairy Friends, and of course the new Flower Soft!

Thanks for stopping by today, have a good rest of the weekend!
