Just Killing Time

Whooo..hoooo... if you're a Queen Kat Blog  Hopper - welcome !  If you're not a QKD hopper - welcome too !!!

If you're a hopper you should have arrived here via the link from the Dark Ink Sorority Blog, if not and you'd like to see all the fabulous creations from the DT then swing right back to the QKD Blog where you'll find the whole hop list.

I'm just so excited that we have some fabulous new stamps released today by one of our new designers - Myka Jelina.  My card today features the awesome 'Killing Time' stamp and I was drawn to these rich purple and green shades for papers and colouring. 

This is a twisted easel card - much easier to make than it might appear!  KT is colouring with Copics and I've added some leafy fronds and a decorative corner cut with Marianne's Designs dies from SU! cardstock in Concorde Crush and Almost Amethyst.  I used three flower gems as the 'stop' for the easel and the background papers are by Papermania.

I've recently purchased PaintShop Pro and I'm still finding out what fabulous things you can do with this software.  After a little experimentation, I discovered that I really like how this image looks in Sepia tones, what do you think?  Do you prefer the original colours or the atmospheric effects of the the alternative version - let me know what you think by leaving me a comment. 

Now I'm sending you off to see what awesomeness Valerie has created for you.  If you'd like to get KT for yourself, just hop to the QKD Store and pop her into your cart and Queen Kat will get it shipped out to you.  You might also like to check out the latest special offers whilst you're there !
