Miss Anya Love

Today is What's Up Wednesday at Club Anya and Friends and I have a wonderful tutorial over there to look at! I altered Miss Anya Love for this card, giving her a longer dress to look more like a princess. In the background I colored up another Carriage of Love from Make it Crafty.

Here's a look at Miss Anya's new long dress which I image is made out of soft velvet with gold satin trim. I used the same colors on her as I did with the carriage so they would match. I also added glitter to her headband, areas of her dress and her shoes, of course.

The laser cut hearts are covered with light yellow and lavender liquid pearls and then added one to each corner. I "sprinkled" on a few self-stick gems and finished one corner with a bow and charm. I used a large Nestabilities die for the background used foam dots to attach it to the base of the card so the whole front stands outward. Anya is also on foam dots which adds another layer and dimension to the card.

Did you know? St. John's Cathedral is an Anglican church perched on a hilltop in St. John's, Antigua. The present cathedral was built on a fossilized reef, in 1845, and is now in its third incarnation, as earthquakes in 1683 and in 1745 destroyed the previous structures. When St. John's Cathedral was first built, it was criticized by ecclesiastical architects for being like "a pagan temple with two dumpy pepper pot towers", while now it is extolled as the best cathedral in the West Indian province.
