Anya and the Rockers


I was a big Barbie fan, back in the day! I remember Barbie and the Rockers, but I think it wasbeyond the "acceptable" age for me to play with those particular Barbies. But, what the heck, I still play with Barbies...I just do it with a four year old now!! I was trying to dream up something fun for Anya to do, and this card came to me!

I do have to tell you all about the background paper. It was black with line drawings of roses with leaves. Well, like a crazy person, I sat there and colored them in with Spica glitter pens in red and green. (I think I may be a little obsessed with coloring) Anyway, I cut the curtains free hand and put rather crude lines to denote folds in them. The stretchy ribbon I found was a perfect addition as a tieback. Anya is so fun to play with, and she always does the coolest things.

Card Details:

Stamps: Rockstar Anya by the Greeting Farm, sentiment computer generated
Paper: DCWV designer paper, Real Red CS by SU, Georgia Pacific white, Basic Black by SU
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Summer Sun for sponging of circle
