Simon Says Stamps Challenge DT - Jay Jay's sketch

This week at Simon Says Stamp's Challenge we are joined by the lovely and talented Jay Jay and she has very kindly provided a fantastic sketch for us all!! The design team are showcasing Sarah Kay images this week so if you have any we'd love to see them on your creations but it is not compulsory for the challenge! As usual you have the chance of winning a $25 gift certificate for the Simon Says Stamp Store courtesy of Heidi!!

I absolutely LOVE this Sarah Kay image. I probably say this every time I do a Sarah Kay card, but my bedroom mirror was covered in Sarah Kay stickers when I was little so I always find these images a real trip down memory lane LOL!! I just love the huge hats and victorian clothing! I've teamed this beautiful image with the last full piece I have from the Basic Grey Wassail paper pad. I have used the ends of some fancy tag die cuts to create a fancy frame for the image.

I've coloured the image with copics to match and inked around the edges with bundled sage distress ink.
The lace and pearls are from my stash and the snowflakes are punched with MS snowflake punch and spellbinders create a flake dies. I've inked the edges with walnut stain distress ink for a vintage look.

The "joy" sentiment was cut from some K&Co paper and I've added it to part of a fancy tag to attach it to the image. I've used stickles on the edges of all the papers.

Hope I've inspired you to join us this week at Simon Says Stamp's Challenge. Pop and have a look at the rest of the teams gorgeous interpretations of Jay Jay's sketch!! Thanks for looking! x

Oh Jane, I've missed your beautiful creations whilst sitting ill at home. Love this card, you won't believe it but every time I pop over to the shops I think "should I, shouldn't I get this Sarah Kay stamp" and I think you've now convinced me to get it... seeing that I am busy with Christmas cards right now. Love your card dear, beautiful layering and colouring. hugs Sharonxx

Ah, Jane, you must teach me how you color your stamps. Your work is just amazing!! I love how you achieve the dark rich colors but still have so much depth. Love your color choices on this card too!! So glad to be on the Simon Says Stamp team together. Have a great day friend!
