Is it me or Anya?

Now then, another post from me today because I have two projects to post tomorrow and if I don't post this now I'll miss the challenge deadline. Anyone for Anya have set the challenge to create 'you're Anya' to use the Anya that best portrays you so........

Being as I look nothing like any of the Anya stamps and never will no matter how long I attend fat club, I decided it was time to have a go at altering an Anya stamp. The incredibly talented Amy has been doing it for ages, and she does it with style too, you must check out her blog to see what she does with these stamps. She is one seriously talented lady. So I had a go and this is what I came up with (Amy don't laugh!).

I used the sketch from Truly Scrumptious and added a little doodling on the blue strips and one trouser leg too. This started off as one of the original Miss Anyas. I masked bits of her off and drew her in with a Letraset pen, but the legs went horribly wrong and I had to cut and chop about which doesn't look great.

I only go out in jeans at the moment and love my pink top that covers my sins! I had to add my huge pewter flower necklace, it goes with everything! So this is the 'Anya me'.

The patterned paper is DCWV, the printed ribbon is Dovecraft and the cute gemstone brads are Doodlebug and were a lovely pressie I got in the post this week from Susie.

And finally, if you're in the mood to get your mitts on some candy, pop over to Die Cut Dreams where you can pop your name down for a chance to win. While you're there check out the fab Halloween challenge with prizes up for grabs too.
