Josephine and Kiki


Hi friends, I have a card to share today that features a sweet, sweet image illustrated by Sarah Kay for Stampavie called Josephine Cuddling Her Pet Cat Kiki. I've always loved Sarah Kay's little girl images and now I'm excited to see some older girls in the mix, too! You can find a broad range of Sarah Kay images, as well as images by many other Stampavie illustrators, under the Stampavie label at Stamper's Dream.

I colored Josephine using mostly Prismacolor pencils (hair and skin were done with Copic markers) in shades of purple to match some of the patterns in the new My Mind's Eye Lime Twist "Happy Go Lucky" collection. The stamped image is die-cut with a Labels Eighteen Nestabilities die by Spellbinders. I used Antique Linen Distress Ink to add a soft frame around the image. The sentiment is from Forever Friends by JustRite Stamps. Embellishments include some lacy trim, Stampin' Up's Rich Razzleberry polka-dot ribbon, a Prima mini rose, a Webster's Pages butterfly stick-pin, machine stitching, Prima turquoise and purple flowers, and some glittery gems from Pizzazz Aplenty.

Here's a closer look at the layered sentiment:

What a beautiful card. Awesome colouring. Lovely embellishments. I almosr bought this image because it didn't have a sentiment. I see now that I can use one of my SU sentiments. Thanks for the inspiration.

Now, the only thing I DON'T like about it is the girl's shoes (but that's not your fault ;-)) - they just don't fit the delicate image. Everything else is as perfect as one can imagine and I love love love it! The colouring is simply breathtaking!
