Doing the KETTO HOP!!!

Welcome to the first Ketto Blog Hop sponsored by Stamping Bella! If you've just happened upon my blog, you can CLICK HERE to start from the beginning at Bloggabella.

I chose the lovely Maisy Ketto for my hop - she is stamped with memento tuxedo black ink and coloured with copics. I used some orange stickles on her wings & crown (you know orange is one of my favourite colours!) and lace stickles on her wings. Both her crown and the center to the flower are cut and paper pieced onto the image to give it some dimension.

The DS paper is from Pink Paislee & it's called enchanting; just like all the Kettos!! The cb is chocolate chip layered with pumpkin pie & certainly celery, I paper pierced around the DS paper. On the celery ribbon I added 3 daisy pink flowers with my Kajinker (such a fun tool to use)

Thanks so much for stopping by! Now it's time to hop on over to see what the amazingly talented Paula has to share - if I lived close to her I would be stalking her for lessons on colouring with pencils!!

Enjoy the rest of the HOP and have a great day!!

Dana
