Sarah Kay

Whenever my mojo goes walkabout a Sarah Kay stamp always helps me find it and this past few days the old mojo didn’t only go walkabout, it got totally lost!  I had to force myself to sit down yesterday to get some DT work done but just could not find it in me so I decided to dig out my Sarah Kays and have a little play.  I set out to colour the image with only Prismacolor pencils but reached for the Copics as well, I must be pre-programmed to reach for them lol.

I stamped Zoe gazing at the butterfly on Kraft coloured card and used the following colours:

Skin: E11, 00, 000, R20
Hair & basket : E39, 35, 30 and dark umber pencil
Aqua: BG13, 11, 10 and muted turquoise pencil
Red: R29, 24, 22 and tuscan red pencil
Grass: YG67, 63, 61 and olive green pencil

The little clouds are a Memory Box Puffy Clouds die, the little die cut flowers are a Doo Hickey Hellebores die, the Ivy leaves are a Marianne Design die that will be on sale in January and the beautiful paper is Basic Grey Picadilly.  The seam binding and flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts, I used 25mm wild roses, 8mm semi open roses, 15mm roses, 20mm roses.  And the gorge border punch is one of the new Martha Stewart PATP sets that a lovely friend in the US sent me xxxx

I sure hope I can get some motivation to do some work today … doubt it though lol.

  33. What a lovely card Bev. Glad SK was able to find your mojo - this is really beautiful work. I love how the colours work on the Kraft card - I'll have to have a look around as my Kraft card seems to be much darker than yours.

  34. Hi Bev, this is lovely and so different from the norm. So refreshing to see the image on Kraft card also instead of the usual white or ivory.
    I hope you and your family have all enjoyed a wonderful Christmas.

  41. Beautiful, I just wanted to thank you for all your tutorial videos, I got the full set of Copic Ciao's from Santa (he couldn't quite stretch to a full set of Copic Sketch), anyway I've been watching all your tutorials and they are fab, you make it look so easy, hopefully I'll get the hand of it before too long.
    Thanks again.
    Cheers
    Luv Hev xx
