Bold Hydrangeas

Welcome to Monday again! :)  But it's Kitchen Sink Stamps Monday so that makes it much better right?! Yes!!  Today I'm sharing my card for Thursday's Word of the Week challenge in the KSS Forum.  If you're looking for a way to stretch yourself, these Word of the Week challenges may be the ticket - give it a try!  The word last week was BOLD and I had so much fun making this card!  I had a pretty good idea of what I wanted to do so I went and looked up Connie's Friday sketch from this past week and got to work. 

I used 3 Step Hydrangeas and it's been so long since I used this set but I love love love the results you get with it!  Those hydrangeas look pretty enough to pick!  I used stems from the Multi-Step Lilacs set.  So what is BOLD about this?  How about those bold, non-traditional colors? I love them!!  The steps I used were:

Turquoise hydrangea:  Step 3 - Bermuda Bay (stamped off) SU!, Step 4 - Bermuda Bay, Step 2 - Bermuda Bay (stamped off 2x), Step 1 - Broken China (stamped off) Ranger

Purple hydrangea:  Step 3 - Rich Razzleberry (stamped off) SU!, Step 4 - Rich Razzleberry, Step 3 - Rich Razzleberry (stamped off 2x), Step 1 - Lilac Posies (stamped off) Memento

Steps & Leaves:  Step 3 - Always Artichoke - SU!, Step 2 - Kiwi Kiss -SU!, Step 1 - Kiwi Kiss (stamped off)

The patterned paper is some new Jillibean Soup I got from i {heart} papers - love the new 6x6 pads!!  Once I got it put together I felt it really needed some pretty ribbon so I used some silk ribbon and Glimmer Mist to make it the color I needed.  I'm ashamed to say I've had 3 new bottles of Glimmer Mist which were part of my Stamping Royalty prize package from Paper Crafts Magazine last year.  I was kind of afraid to use them - what do you do?? But I remembered seeing others die silk ribbon or seam binding with them and it was so easy and fun!  You might be seeing more of this! 

I didn't put a sentiment on the front of this one, I'll be adding that to the inside when I decide to send this one out!  Thanks for visiting today! I hope you have a great Monday! Check out the rest of the KSS Crew for more pretties! :)
