QKD New Release Tuesday Hop!!!!

Oooooo do I love NEW RELEASE DAY!!! We've got a bevvy of new beautifulness for you today!!!

But before we begin, if you have arrived here from the WIS blog then you are on the right track!! If not, please start here!!
Here is the sketch that we worked with for today's release:

May I introduce to you White Rabbit. (she will be available in the store on Wednesday)

Ok, so I know I didn't use really ANY white in my creation but I simply could not help myself! There is so much gorgeous and intricate detail in this stamp and it was SO fun to color in.
As you know, QKD has shifted from polymer to grey, unmounted rubber stamps. I have mounted this on EZ-Foam that you can purchase from QKD along with your stamps. The clarity and crispness that comes out in the detailing in the stamps is gorgeous. I did this on one try...which I don't normally do with ANY stamp. It usually takes me 1 or 2 tries to get it perfect. This one...spot on the first time.
I inked her up with Momento ink in Tuxedo. It's my ink of choice these days. I ran with the pseudo-psychedelic theme playing on the white rabbit and worked the poppy flowers to really stand out. As well as our smoking caterpillar friend ;) His smoke rings are colored and then gone over in Crystal Glaze to really make them pop.

The water, necklace and ears of the White Rabbit are also glazed up for some added dimension.
I strayed a bit from the original sketch, replacing the ribbons and rivets on the sides of my image with stitching in the back. I tried to work it exactly and it just wasn't happening...so I went with what really did the image justice.

Wait until you see the rest of the gorgeousness that is in store for you!! Keep hopping along!! Off you scoot to Anita's blog to see what loveliness she's created for us today!!!

Ooooooooooooooo...... Meredith - how AWESOME is this card!!!! I love what you did with WR, isn't she just fabulous? You made exactly the right decision with the ribbons and rivets, this is such an amazingly details stamp, it would be a shame to cover up any of it :o) Great colouring too :o)
