KSS Monday with Friday's Sketch

Good morning my friends!!  

First I wanted to let you know that I will have 2 posts today so please scroll down or click here to view the last of the TCP peeks!

I popped into the Kitchen Sink Stamps Forum yesterday to see what I had missed the last week or so.  Lynn has been busy busy with her 10 minute challenge cards.  They are amazing!  She makes me think I could actually make a 10 minute card! LOL!  I also found that Connie had posted a brand new sketch challenge on Friday and Makiko's Kitchen Pantry challenge was to use a stamp set that hadn't been inked in a while.  So I got to work (don't you love it when you can work with a challenge or two?  It gives you someplace to start!).

I pulled out Multi-Step Sunflowers from Kitchen Sink Stamps and had fun using a great color recipe from Maria!  Those color recipes are such a great resource!  I changed it a tiny bit but not much.  Also, if you check out the sketch you'll notice that I flipped it.

I couldn't decide where to put the sentiment so I opted to use the inside.  Of course I had to use some pretty paper in there as well!  Isn't that dp puuurrrty?  It's the Picket Fence line from LilyBee Designs (I bought mine at i {heart} papers where you always get great & fast service!)

Here are my ink steps: 

Sunflower:  Step 3 - Rhubarb Stalk - 2x, Step 2 - Rhubarb Stalk, Step 1 - Rhubarb Stalk - stamped off and then Potter's Clay -stamped off with Sweet Plum inked only around the edges.  Then, just because I'm crazy, I used Step 1 again, inked just around the edges with Imperial Purple and, stamped off.

Leaves:  Step 3 - Cottage Ivy, Step 2 - Cottage Ivy - stamped off and then Dandelion, Step 1 - Pear Tart

Watering Can:  Step 4 - Imperial Purple, Step 3 - Imperial Purple - stamped off, Step 2 - Imperial Purple - stamped off 2x, Step 1 - Imperial Purple - stamped off 3x and then London Fog - stamped off 

I hope you spend some time today visiting the rest of the KSS Crew - they always have something amazing! Thanks for visiting!
