Princess of the Sea

Today Queen Kat Designs are launching fabulous new stamps designed by the artist Sue Miller.  Those of us in the Royal Court of Queen Kat are just bursting with excitement at the fabulous new images are are getting to work with during 2011. 

You should have hopped here after seeing what the lovely Valerie has created for you, if you came straight here do go back to the start of the Hop on the QKD blog, trust me you really won't want to miss any of the gorgeous projects using these fabulous new stamps that the DT have created for you.

The image I'm working with is "Princess of the Sea" don't you think she's totally faberooney?  I've got two cards to share with you today, I wanted to demonstrate how the same image can look completely different dependent upon colour, layout and embelishments added.

For the first card I've coloured the image with Copics and added some Spica Glitter pen on the beads, which matches the larger beads I've added on top of the ribbon at the bottom of the card.  I used a set of Marianne's Designs dies to cut the frame under the image and created the pleated half-circle element at the top using a nestie large scallop circle die set.  The seaweed/fronds behind the ribbon were punched with a Martha Stewart punch.  The background card is SU! Not Quite Navy and the frame and some fronds cut from Sage Shadow.  I created the sentiment on my computer.

My second card is in complete contrast to the first.  I created a 'Clean and Simple' (CAS) design for this one, leaving the image uncoloured.  I used all the same materials as for the first card, except for Copic pens and beads.  Same colour cardstock, same ribbon but a different shape card and the sentiment is a stamp from the January kit by Myka Jelina. 

The lovely Princess of the Sea is available from today in the QKD Store if you'd like to have her for yourself.

I'm now sending you hopping along to the QKD Store so you can pop this gorgeous girl into your cart !

Thanks for joining us today, I hope you've enjoyed yourself.
