Anya Ink :: sketch challenge

The challenge at Anya Ink this week is a lovely little sketch and this is the card that I am submitting for it! I just love this stamp of Anya in the bath (from the Greeting Farm) - that would be lovely - a nice bubble bath - don't you think!?

I have stamped me time Anya on to Xpress It's new Copic blending card * and I am so impressed with this card... it stamps up beautifully and is such a pleasure to colour on... so smooth and lovely! I've been experimenting with a few different blending techniques recently so you will no doubt see them popping up! I did a little bit of feathering for her headband!

I usually colour skin in with the R00, 11, 20 combination... but now that I have the E000 I went for a new combo... E000, 00 and 02 .. bit paler and less pink'ish.

Thanks for stopping by.

The Copics I used were:
face/skin - E000, E00, E02 (R20 - mouth)
hairband - RV95, RV42
hair - E37,35, 33, 31
bathtub - B97, 95, 93
bubbles - BV31

and shock horror - no white gel pen on the image... just around the circle :D

* I will be selling this in my webstore! :D


  1. Oh Sammi, this is gorgeous!! I love your colouring, the hair and headband are fabulous and really stand out against all the blue an draw your eye, it's stunning!

  2. You have been hard at work haven't you. I must get to and use these gorgeous images you stamped for me. Love it. Love the blues. Great job with the sketch. Thanks for joining us at Anya Ink.

  3. Hi Sammi this is adorable! I have had to use the R00 as my E000 has run out, and I can't refill it as it a Ciao, so first on my list will be a Copic Sketch E000 lol.

  8. This is such a gorgeous image and you have coloured her perfectly. I must admit I usually use the R00 & R11 but my R00 has run out and am trying E00 & E11 at the mo which I am getting used too but think I need to order the E000 which I cant get in my local shop. xx

  10. I love this Anya stamp and I definitely agree that a bubble bath would be nice.... with maybe some candles and a glass of wine! Gorgeous card Sammi, I love her hair. I must admit that I don't do brown hair, might have to give it a go!

  11. Mmmmm bubbles .... bring it on! Great card Sammi.... I use the E combos for skin and chuck in a bit of R20 for some shadowing. Not so pink.
