QKD New Release Tuesday Hop!!!! 2010 May WIS Kit!!! Week 2 of Newness!

Another Happy New Tuesday Hop Everyone!! I'm so excited to bring you this new GORGEOUS newness from Maigan-Lynn straight from the Castle to you!!!

But first...if you've come here from the WIS blog then you are on the right track!! If not please start HERE so that you don't miss anything new!!

Today we worked with the following sketch:
I decided to work with the elements within the 2010 May WIS kit. I chose the flower arrangement as well as the beautiful and so true sentiment "live for today". My card base is the cover of an old pamphlet that I had from a vintage store local to me. I used bits of cardstock from my scrap drawer to create the backing for the gorgeous flowers which I've colored with my Copics.

Next, I used some scraps from my new project last week so you'll notice some tonal similarities. Reduce and reuse my friends!! =)

My sentiment is punched out using my SU! word punch and adhered to one layer of oval die cut cardstock. That layer is then popped up using 3-D foam adhesive onto a 2" oval punch out of a vintage-esque looking paper.

I love how this came out and I hope it inspires you! Now off you go to Anita's blog for some delicious goodness!!

Thanks for visiting and don't forget that QKD is now all in grey, laser etched rubber!! Wait until you see the intricate detail when you stamp!! It is TRE-FABU!!

Till next time!!
