Royal Kat Monday...

Welcome to the second edition of Royal Kat Monday with Queen Kat Designs. Today is the preview day for the new November releases on Wednesday! If you've hopped here from Alex's Blog you're on the right track. If you've missed the beginning of the hop, please feel free to visit the QKD blog and start from the beginning.Today I'm previewing my favorite new release with you! This is a little guy from a stamp set called Brownies. The set contains 3 different little brownies and 3 sute sayings. The set can be used year round!! but, I'm getting a jump on my Christmas cards so I colored him all up ready to hep put out the "cheese" for santa!
I just got a set of the Tombow water based markers.. And I LOVE THEM!!! I'd take them over Copic any day. There's only 96 of them so that means my marker budget is low and I dont have to store a ton of markers I'll probably never use. I think I got like 34 of them and so far I've used all of them lol. And I've only had them for about 32 hours. :)
*tip if you have the Tombow markers and you're having paper issues, try watercolor paper (the back side) it works like a charm and it's cheap too.
I wanted to show you how I did the edge of the card so I've photographed it up close.. It's the "Icicle" punch from EK success. I punched it out of double sided cardstock from Cosmo Cricket and then lightly wet the edge and used a bamboo skewer to "curl" the edge and inked it with Chestnut Roan Chalk ink. It's such a fun addition to this card. I hope you'll grab this stamp set for yourself It's so cute!!! The new release stamps will be available in the store on Wednesday!
Please remember, we have 2 blog hops a week now. This one on Monday's and then the regular Royal Court Wednesday hop. They both start at the QKD Blog.
For more preview fun, please hop over to Kelly's blog. Have an awesome day. I'll be back tomorrow with another preview if you'd like to stop by.

Today's hop order will be:
