QKD- Tuesday blog hop!

I hope you are enjoying yourself on the BRAND NEW Tuesday edition of the Queen Kat Designs Stamp Co. Blog Hop. You should have arrived from the Dark Ink Sorority Blog. If not, the hop begins at the Queen Kat Designs Royal Blog.

This week is a sketch challenge. I love working with sketches. I sometimes follow them better than others, but I do use them as my jumping off point.

For today's hop I am bringing you, once again, Kadona. Why? Well, just look at him! You know you need this stamp too. I used Basic Grey Capella paper for the background. I selected that before I began to color him and used it as my guide. He and the background are both double matted in dark brown and kraft. The ribbon is from my stash. My FAVORITE addition, it the Happy Stixx with the sentiment. I added the dots to it to coordinate with the image. However, the sentiment comes already wood burned onto the Happy Stixx. It is FABULOUS!

Your next stop on the hop is Anita's BLOG. I know she has something absolutely amazing to share, she always does, so please hop over, check it out, and leave her some love!

Also for challenge:

The Burtonesque Dolls - #10- Burton Boys - really- do you SEE the spider and web on his top hat?
