Going on to Round 2

The other night while chatting with Vicki Douglas, Ms. Queen Kat herself from Queen Kat Designs asked me if I was going to enter her contest.  I had forgotten about it as I was on vacation when the call was made and I didn't have any stamp supplies with me.  So, I still had time and threw in 2 of my favorite cards.  I was fortunate enough to make it into the 2nd round so here I go :-)

We were asked to make a card and an altered item.  I got my card done and am still thinking on my altered item but hope by the end of the week to have that done.

I picked out Rock Star Anya from The Greeting Farm to practice my coloring on.  I've been realizing that I don't have a lot of bold open faced stamps to really do a large amount of coloring with.  Don't get me wrong, I love the ones I have to color with, just need to keep in mind when shopping that I might want some larger stamps.

I combined this card with one of QKD sketch challenges and took a few liberties with it.  First, I rotated the sketch 90 degrees to the left..  I decided instead of corner rivet I would do a prima with rhinestone but added it to Anya's headband.  I also did not do random stamping on my one strip (and the paper is embossed, I can only dream my embossing looks that good!)

Visit the Queen Kat Designs website and give me a shout out and show me some support.  You can see all the ladies work who are in the 2nd round here in the Mr. Linky section.  I've got tough competition!

Cardstock: Basic Black, Stamper's Select, SEI Black Orchid Paper
