Sarah Kay Sunday!

It is Sarah Kay Sunday! The day the new Sarah Kay challenge Blog post the new challenge, I still am so in love with my Sarah Kay Stamps and can't wait to see the new ones that will be coming out!



This weeks challenge is "3 buttons & 3 Jewels" basically you can make anything you like as long as there are 3 buttons & 3 jewels on your project. Well and of course a Sarah Kay image!


I wish you could have seen my desk while I was working on this card! It was quite funny. I have TONS of buttons and lots of different types of jewels. I made the card first, and had it sitting there and was dumping... yes dumping buttons out of jars and boxes to find what buttons I wanted to use. I has so many that I loved that were perfect for this card.... but only had 2 of them. The cat was going crazy jumping and playing with the buttons that were dropping to the floor. But finally I settled for these three purple pearled buttons. Then went for the jewels. I first had stuck down three small pink pearls. But they just didn't show well enough, and then I found these three flower gems, that came from a swap months and months back. Just too pretty.




The details for the card... I colored the image with my Copics and Sakura Glaze pens. The papers are from Basic Grey Euphoria collection. I cut the image and the mat with my Nestibilites and stitched down with gel pens. I needed more for the background other than just the deep purple card stock, so I used a Prima stamp and my VersaMark ink pad to water mark the card stock. I love doing this and haven't done it in a while. The sentiment is again from Rubberstamp Tapestry. I added my "required" 3 buttons and the 3 gems.






Make sure you take a moment and check out the other DT cards over at Sarah Kay Challenge Blog. I am always in awe of the work these other DTs do.... really makes me reach deep to try and do as well as they do!
