QKD November Release Previews

I can't believe it's already November! Are you here for the Queen Kat Designs November release previews? You should have started at the Queen Kat Designs blog, if not, hop on back there! There's lots of AWESOME new releases to see! If you are coming from the delightful Sara's blog, you are in the right place! These stamps will be available in the store starting on November 4. Isn't that exciting?

My first project uses Monarch Mia. She's a mermaid that has characteristics of a butterfly. Super pretty! You can't really tell in this photo, but I did color her tail a buttery yellow color. I started coloring her and thought that she stood out more without the background colored in. You know, like those photos that are black and white with a touch of color?

Next up is Lydia. She's a pretty little mermaid with jewels on her forehead and flowers on her tail. I had her colored in and I asked Dustin what color I should make her hair. He said blue. I said "are you sure? Not brown or blond." He was sure and since I asked, I went with it. The background paper here is DCWV, the flower is a Prima, and the little rhinestone is Darice.
And I had my own little guest designer this week. ;) This is Brady's creation, showing that ANYONE can use QKD stamps! He was watching me while coloring in his coloring book. He tried to "help" me color so I gave him his own Lydia image to play with. I let him pick some paper scraps and some stickers to use on his card. This was the FIRST card he ever made, now he wants to make cards everyday. He comes up to me and says "CARDS!"
Now, hop on over to the Queen Kat shop and pick yourself up some yummy stamps. The special right now is buy 2 stamp sets and get 1 separates for FREE or buy 3 separates and get one FREE (valued at $3.99 or less). If you really want to, you can wait until Nov 4 to buy stuff. Also, if you want to WIN a FREE mermaid stamp, don't forget to enter my challenge HERE.
