QKD Store. If you have joined in with the previous Hops this month, you will already have seen the delightful Fairy stamp called 'He Love Me, He Loves Me Not', which is the image I've chosen to use for today's project.
This week Queen Kat gave the DT the picture on the right to use as inspiration. There are some luscious and zingy colours in this picture, some of my very favourites in fact!
So, with my mental 'design board' filled, I decided to create some 'inchies' using the colours in the picture. I cut out 16 pieces of white card each one 30cm x 30cm in size. I then coloured these in shades of the three colours I had chosen (green, blue and turquoise) with ProMarkers. I then put these 'inchies' through various Cuttlebug embossing folders from the new Asian Bundle set. Each of the pieces was then attached to the base card in a random design.
I stamped the image, cutting out only a portion of it using an oval nestabilities die. I coloured the image using Copics and ProMarkers, with touches of Spica glitter pen on parts. I then added Martha Stewart irridescent tiny heart glitter in yellow to her skirt - just for fun!!!! The image was layered on to a piece of yellow card cut out with a scalloped oval nestie which is only very slightly larger than the oval containing the image. I attached the image and the sentiment over the 'inchies'. I created the sentiment on my computer as I knew exactly what wording I wanted to use and don't have anything like that on a stamp. I cut the sentiment out with an oval nestie and layered it on to a yellow scalloped oval, cut with a very slightly larger nestie. Finally, I added three blue paper flowers and leaf fronds punched with a Martha Stewart punch.
I'm now sending you on to Steph's blog to see the amazing creation she has to share with you today. Don't forget there is another Hop tomorrow when the rest of the DT will be showcasing their creations for you -tomorrow's Hop starts at the QKD blog. It's well worth checking the QKD Store regularly to see what great deals and discounts are running each month - you wouldn't want to miss out on a bargain would you! Right now there's a fabulous special offer bundle of new release stamps for $25.
Thank you for taking part in the Hop today - feedback is great to receive, I know I love to read all the kind comments left for me. I hope to see you back next Monday for the next Hop when I will be revealing a project using the brand new March WIS Kit stamps - bet you can't wait to see this new WIS Kit!
