Blog Hop - Guess the Mystery Anya!

WooHoo! New release day is finally here! The Greeting Farms has some adorable new Anya and Ian stamps available today! Over the last few days the other DT members and I have been showing you sneak peaks of Wild Things, the new Digi Baseball Ian and Digi Easter Anya. A few of the DT's showed some beautiful cards made with Geisha Anya, now available in rubber (mine is at the end of this post.) And now we have one new release left - The Mystery Anya! I've shown just a tiny portion of her and there is a Super Fun Blog Hop to Guess the Mystery Anya and win some rubber!

March Blog Hop Official Rules:
If you are just starting out on my blog, be sure to back up to the Jacquie's blog, to officially start the hop and collect your clues along the way. The clues lie somewhere within your instructions on where to go next for this blog hop ;)
Once you are done "hopping" you should have 6 clues in total. You will then have until 11:59AM CST to email Jessica at with all 6 clues and your guess as to what the new "Mystery" Anya is. Entries will not be accepted after 11:59 CST, as the new Anya will be revealed at Noon CST on the Club Anya Blog.
Three randomly chosen winners will be announced on the Club Anya blog on Sunday along with the winner of the sketch challenge.
Good Luck and get hoppin! *************************************************************************************
So, if you're ready to keep playing, you should Pointe yourself over to Michelle's blog.

Here are my cards made with the wonderful new Geisha Anya (in rubber)! I didn't get her right away when she was in digital form because I didn't know if she was really "my thing" but I am so in love with her now. She is so fun to color, and she looks so elegant! My first card uses Some Basic Grey DP (Lily Kate). I used Chrystal effects on her hair. It is extra thick because first my daughter walked up and said "oh, what's this?" and picked her up before she was dry so I had to add more to remove the fingerprints, then several hours later when she was ALMOST dry I flipped her over on her face and put little marks in her hair!

The second Geisha also used some Basic Grey Dp, Pima flowers, and stick on pearls. I still don't have any blacks or greys in Copics so her hair is colored with Prisma markers but the rest of her are copics. I think the markers work just fine together (I've read in some places it's fine they are both alcohol ink, and other sites say "never use them together!") I just think the tips on the copics are much sturdier. I can tell if I've never used a Prisma before because the tip is still very pointy and sharp but after even one use it's a little mushy.

Well, have lots of fun today (hope to see you back for the full reveal of Mystery Anya after 12 CST) and Good Luck!

The mystery Anya has leaped into my heart already, and I can't wait to see your final project! Eeeee! So exciting!
I love your Geishas, they are so serene and confident. I love the crystal effects story, I often wonder if I'm the only one who does stuff like that. ;)
