QKD New Release Blog Hop!!!

Good Tuesday morning!! First and foremost you should have come here via Anita's fabulous blog however, if you have simply happened up on here you simply must start HERE so that you don't miss one fantastic creation!!!

Especially because today is a new release month!!! I am SO excited to introduce you to a BRAND NEW stamp today!! There are SO many new stamps in the house you are not going to be able to contain yourself!!

Today is a sketch challenge. Such a great way to start creating!! It's a great jumping off point when your mojo is a little 'stuck'.
Let me introduce you to Virgo!! She is a gorgeous creation from the hands of Che Gilson. The colors of the Virgo are green and brown so I went to my stash and grabbed bits and pieces of some of my favorite designer papers and just started mixing and matching!!
I colored Virgo with my Copics and sparkly Sakura pens. I pretty much kept to the sketch adding stitching, of course, as I can't seem to make a card without it!! ;)
In lieu of the double ribbon, I decided to go with a ruffly ribbon which I LOVE doing. I try a different ruffle technique every time I use this style. Sometimes I staple, sometimes I use standard runner adhesive, sometimes I use glue dots and sometimes I stitch. This time I used a stapling technique.

I just love the ruffle and the way it looks 'different' depending on the technique that I use!!

Now off you scoot to the WIS blog to see what gorgeousness is happening over there!!

And don't forget to check out the 3 BRAND NEW stamp lines at The Castle!!! Get your wallet out!!! =)

Thanks for coming by!!

XOXO
Meredith
