Special Friday QKD Blog Hop

Happy Friday!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Welcome to the QKD Special Sin Bonet Sue blog hop. You should have arrived here via Vicki's blog. If you're just dropping in, swing back to the QKD blog to start from the very beginning.


I can't believe the end of the work week is almost here! It's been like a forever long week. Maybe it's because I've been so excited about this new release? I got my image last weekend and I sat down right away to color her up.


Steampunk Sue is part of the new Sin Bonet Sue collection by Queen Kat Designs. Isn't she FAB? I loved coloring her in a slightly shabby way...just seemed to fit. And the sentiments that are included are too perfect!!!! That is if you have a slightly twisted mind like mine. Some are not for the faint of heart.


My second card I got a little more mellow and slightly Victorian with it. Along with having some fun with some tiny watch parts I picked up at Mega Meet last year.


The next stop on the hop is Lara's blog!! Happy Hopping!!!!


FYI.....all the acrylic stamps are still 60% off....and Rubber stamps are 10% until Monday. So, go get over to the store and fill up your cart with some rubbery sinful goodness.



Happy Stamping,
Shannon

Royal Tuesday Blog Hop!!!!


Happy Tuesday!!!!!! Today's QKD Royal hop starts at the QKD blog, so swing back over there so you don't miss anything.

It's a color challenge this week using only one main color and any needed neutrals. I choose to play with one of my favorite QKD stamps the VW Bug for this week.

I couldn't decide on a color at first since I wanted to do yellow, but didn't have any paper to use that I liked. So I ended up going with Green...and I think it turned out really well.

I colored the Bug with Prismacolor Pencils blending with OMS.
Don't forget....we have a special hop coming up on Friday with the release of a fun and funky line of stamps!!!!! I can't wait to show you the girl I got to work with.

The next stop on the hop is Alex's blog!!!




Happy Stamping,

Royal Tuesday Blog Hop!!!!

Happy Tuesday!!!!!! Today's QKD Royal hop starts at the QKD blog, so swing back over there so you don't miss anything.

It's release week!!!!! And I choose to play with Soleil for this week using this sketch.

And.....I choose to do her in a cool black, silver and white scheme. I know....I usually color these ladies up in some bright colors, so I decided to tone it down for this week. I'll be back with lots of color for next week.

Here's a closeup of Soleil so you can see the glitter pen and silver I used in her hair.

All the release sets will be available in the store tomorrow!!!! And don't forget about the crop coming up this weekend at the Castle.
