Club Anya & Friends First Day of Previews...

Good morning, welcome to the first day of Anya & friends April previews from The Greeting Farm...
We want to introduce you to a new cute sprout 'Eric'... isn't he just fabulous? and if you head over to the blog you may find a couple of additions to our team too, "Woo Hoo!!!!" 


Club Anya & Friends have a wonderful sketch challenge today too, which I have based my card on, the rocker metal look led me to the machine type idea with gears etc... The oval gear matt I have created by dry embossing the oval die and cutting the teeth of the gears free hand and a bit rough he he! The sentiment is from two other Anya sets which I liked the teaming up of. Pumice stone distress ink totally rocks.... it's great for the mucky markings on the patterned paper FAB!!!
Sorry this is such a quick post... as you read this I'll be buzzying around the Nec today meeting up with some of my FABULOUS blogging buddies spending (of course), chatting and general craftiness alll round, tee hee. 


Supplies: Patterned Paper: Cosmo Cricket; DCWV: texture stack;
Stamps: TGF: ws-Eric (release 1st March); Talk Loud; My Guy Ian;
Ink: memento & archival: black; Copic: markers*; distress inks;
Dies: Sizzix: gears; Spellbinders: Nestabilities: Ovals; EKsuccess: border punch;
Other: Tim Holtz: Mini attachers; blending tool; 3D foam;


*Skin: E000, 21,13 & R20, Hair: E50, 53, Outfit: E07, R24, 59, B91, 95, 97 G21, C-1, C-3, 100, I use B60 for shadow and my colourless Blender throughout.

So I have finished my painting and will share more tomorrow sometime, when I've recovered from the crafty buzz ha ha, thank you for all your wonderful encouragement. I hope you get the chance to join in with our sketch!!! Thanks for stopping by and be sure to have a fun weekend, BiG HuGs Kim :)
