QKD Royal Monday Blog Hop

This is the beginning of a very special week for Queen Kat Designs. We're celebrating three years in business making acrylic stamps, right here in the USA! It would only make sense that the Design Team's color challenge for this week would be the official QKD colors: pink, purple, gray and white. Don't forget each week we have two blog hops. I'm on Monday's hop list, but there is another hop on Wednesday. For both hops, and to start at the beginning to see all of the great projects, click on QKD. If you've been following the blog hop, you came from my new blogging buddy, Kelly. Next up is my Stampin' Saturday partner, Penny. And be sure to come back here this Thursday, November 19, for a special blog hop. We'll be continuing the three year celebration with a very special stamp release.

Paint a cardboard Q with two coats of DecoArt Dazzling Metallic Silver Sage acrylic paint. Using clear VersaMark, stamp the QKD Funky Swirl randomly on the Q. Coat with Ranger super fine detail silver embossing powder and heat set until the powder turns to liquid silver. Stamp the QKD Kings Crown onto purple cardstock and cut out. Outline with Marvy Twinklette pigmented gold glitter marker. Embellish with Hero Arts pink pearls and some gold cord. Build up the back with cardboard and pop dots until it is the same depth as the Q. Glue the Q onto a Rosebud Scalloped Card by the Paper Company. Place the crown along side the top of the Q. Embellish the Q with pink and purple ribbons and stacked flowers topped with Ranger Rock Candy Stickles. Voila! A card fit for a queen! Happy Birthday/Anniversary, Queen Kat!

Don't forget to end your hop at the QKD store . There are some wonderful specials going on there!
