The new look Anya Ink is here

Hello lovely ladies, just a super quickie post for me tonight (I am scheduling this last night, Glenn's cricket presentation night started half an hour ago and I'm not even ready yet!)

It's the start of a new challenge over at Anya Ink and this week the theme is Anything Goes!
When I first saw these creepy cakes I did not really like them but the more I saw them in sneak peeks the more they grew on me and by their release date I had to have them. This is the first of many creepy cake themed cards, I'm sure, not that this little lovely is particularly creepy, lol.
I found this paper in my stash, left over from my mum's birthday card, it seemed perfect with this image and I loved the pattern so much I did not want to cover it up so I kept everything really simple, a few punched and glittered butterflies (I have a MS butterfly punch ordered and I was hoping it would arrive in time for this card but it did not :( I distressed and glittered my edges and glittered the butterflies on the image, which was coloured with copics, loving them! I went to do a little faint shading around the image, love the way it makes it pop, and accidentally picked up the wrong shade of grey and only realised half way through colouring I was using my dark marker, D'oh! Blonde moment :) I must pay more attention next time, lol. Be sure to head over here and check out the fabulous work of our amazing new DT!!

OOh I love it! The colours are perfect. Makes me want to colour mine up. A great tip for copics, you can use your colourless blender pen to take some colour away. Take if from a girl whose done the same mistake before ;)
