Sarah Kay

Here she is… my first card made using a Sarah Kay stamp, the image is My Sweet Lili and isn’t she just precious?

The layout for this card started off as Stamp with Stampavie challenge, previous Stamp with Sarah Kay. They changed the name of the challenge blog to include all the other wonderful stamps from Stampavie and they post a new challenge every Wednesday. I started using the layout for Challenge 14, once I had my image cut and colored the bottom scallop section wouldn’t fit on the card… in the end I was only able to do half the sketch. Oh well, maybe next time.

I colored the image using Prismacolor Pencils blended with Gamsol, I had to make sure my pencils and stumps were sharpened to fit in the smaller areas of the image. Next time I use the image I going emboss the image and then use markers and a blender to color it, hopefully that will help get the color spread in the smaller areas. All the cardstock and patterned paper is from Close to My Hearts Reflection Kit, Everlasting.

Sarah Kay stamps are a bit pricey for one acrylic stamp (at least I think so), they do leave a clean crisp image, come easily clean and are very durable for an acrylic.

Have a great day and thanks for visiting ~ Jovi
