Aries the Fire Eater !

It's March 1st and that means a new month and brand new release stamps by Queen Kat Designs.

My new girl for this week is the fabulous Aries by Che Gilson, she's so gorgeous and very fiery. As soon as I saw her I knew I wanted to use lots of yellow, orange and red - all the colours of fire.

I coloured her with Copics and added touches of clear Spica Glitter Pen before cutting her out using a plain oval nestie. I sponged round the edge with Distress Inks then added her over a layer cut from So Saffron cardstock by SU!.

I've had this totally scrummy background paper in my stash for ages, just waiting for the perfect project - and this was it. I added a length of dark brown ribbon with sparkly dots and punched out three flowers from two sizes of Nellie Snellen punches, layered them up and added the tiny yellow buttons.

The gorgeous Aries is now availble in the Queen Kat Designs Store if you'd like her for yourself.
Thanks for dropping by today, I hope you've enjoyed your visit.
