Purple WIS Haze

Hop.....hop.....hop.... so happy to have you hopping by today.  Hope you are finding lots of inspiration along the way on the QKD Monday Blog Hop.  You should have arrived here via Penny's blog, but if not I am sure you'll want to head back to the QKD blog where you'll find the full list of links for the Hop.  That way you won't miss any of the amazing projects created by the DT for you today using more of the newly released stamps from Queen Kat Designs, just follow the links as you hop along.

If you joined in the hop last week and/or visited the WIS blog, you will know that I have the new March WIS Kit to design with for the whole of this month - how lucky am I?

This new Kit is totally awesome and I am so in love with this fabulous mermaid!  I coloured her with Copics and ProMarkers and added a little silver ProMarker to various parts of the image.

I found this lusciously seductive lacy effect purple background paper in my stash and a scrap of the striped paper which colour matches it perfectly.  I think this mermaid looks fabulous in shades of purple and mauve and the effect is so different to the yellows of my project from last monday. 

We had a sketch to work with again this week and I decided to replace one of the buttons on the left hand side with one of the sentiments from the Kit, cut out with a small circle nestabilities die and a little purple chalk ink rubbed over the surface. 

A short length of purple grosgrain ribbon was the final embellishment I added and I think this simple layout showcases the main image perfectly.

I'm now sending you on your way to Steph's blog as she has a fabulous creation to share with you today, showcasing another of the newly released QKD stamps this month.

If you've enjoyed viewing my project and want to get the March WIS Kit in your stamp collection, hurry over to the QKD Store, the monthly WIS Kits sell out really fast and you don't want to miss this one!
