QKD New Release Tuesday Hop!!!! Victory is Mine!!!

Happy Tuesday Everyone!!! I've got to tell you I'm SOOOOOOOOO excited about all of this fantabulousness newness that's been released at The Castle!!!

But before I show you my creation for the day, you should have traveled here via the WIS blog and if not I want to remind you that you MUST start HERE in order to see all of this great team's hard and STUNNING work!!!

Here is the delicious sketch we were given to work with today:
This week I was inspired to create a piece in lieu of a card. I flipped the image 90 degrees and ran with it.

I have this amazing cardstock that my brother found for me a long time ago and it was PERFECT for what I had envisioned for this project.

I stamped the seriously, hardcore, delicious and gorgeous Sadie's Victory three times over. Once very light, the second one a little darker and the third one regularly. I heat set them all and then colored them with my Copics.

My first image I kept relatively light, a little ghostly. The second one I envisioned her gaining more strength and the third one she's fully colored and ready for battle!
The background paper that I used to mount my images to is vintage paper from an old plumbers repair book from the 30's. I found it in an antique shop in Maine last year and I use it sparingly because I love it so!
I used my Cricut to cut the circles out in light purple background paper and the pretty baroque-esque darker paper. I printed the words Truth, Beauty and Love in MS Word and trimmed them out with my oval scalloped punch.

The star is from the Party Like A Rockstar set. I stamped it, colored it and then glittered it up. Each star has a little more glitter than the one before.
The words FIND YOUR STRENGTH are MM Velvet Letters. I adhered them on and then stitched them many times with a funky, wavy stitch.

I had so much fun working with this image and sketch!!! Now off you go hopping to the amazing Anita's blog for some seriously cool inspiration!!!
