Music Saves My Soul Saturday & Anyone for Anya? Challenge

Good morning. Something a little different to start off with today. Marcea from Marcea's Crafting Corner has resumed her Saturday music posting with a great name - Music Saves My Soul.

I love 80's music.. I was a teen child in the 80's and always loved music of any genre, depending on my mood at the time. I guess some things never change.... who wants to guess my mood today?? ;) 

To play along please post the picture of 'Music Saves My Soul' to your sidebar and link it to Marcea's blog to help spread the word. Then share your music video on your blog and link it up and Marcea will send a little candy to her favourite song each week. Fun or what??!! 

Now then, on to my Anyone for Anya? DT card and this week we want to see MONOCHROMATIC creations - which means different tones/shades of the one colour. 

The first thing that popped into my head when I read the challenge was Basic Grey Capella. Perfect!! I matted it with tan coloured cardstock. The border work was done with MS's Doily Lace Punch. 

I coloured my image with copics sketch markers - 
Skin: E21, 51, 00, 000, 02(blush)
Shoes, Coat & Hat: E44, 43, 42, E35(buttons)
Scarf & Flower: E50, 51, 53
Hair: E35, 33, 31

and I distressed the background with Brushed Cordoroy ink.

The yummy lace is one of ebay bargains - and that reminds me, I need to restock :D To embellish I added Wild Orchid flowers, 3mm self adhesive pearls and a Tim Holtz adage ticket. 

This week we are sponsored by Crafty Sentiments

and the prize is a fabby Christmas digi image. Be sure to hop over to the BLOG to check out both the prize and my teamies' wonderful work. 

Have a grrrreat Sunday!
