Royal Kat Tuesday!

I am no longer affiliated with QKD - I cannot support a company who runs down any company that's successful in our business. Stamping is about supporting each other and raising people up, not knocking others down so you can look bigger. Not to mention an owner who blasts her own design team members. Thanks to all my readers for continuing to visit me. I value you highly.

Hello and welcome to my blog! Have you heard of Steampunk? It's a fabulous combination of old Victorian style and modern mechanical pieces. I love this stuff!!

And...here is my card! (yes....it's hanging out with my Bubba Gump margarita shaker!)

I used Cosmo Cricket, Gina K, and Basic Grey papers for this card.

I stamped the birds on a fence in StazOn, and embossed with clear powder. Then I inked the background with Ranger distressing inks to give the faux sky and background. I used Basic Grey bling, Gina K's flower and ribbon, and my trusty Copic markers to fill in. I did turn the sketch on it's side. Now, you know me, this card will be going to our soldiers, so I have some additional work to do on the inside of the card.

I'm grateful that you stopped by here on your way today.

Cool runnings. Peace be the journey. ~ky
