KSS Blessings

Happy Monday! I hope you all had a blessed Easter weekend.  It's time for another Kitchen Sink Stamps Monday and this time I used the Sketch Challenge from Splitcoaststampers for my card.

I played around with some color this time wanting it to have almost a "spotlight" effect without being an exact spotlight (make sense??).  I used Multi-Step Giant Sunflower for my card.

In the background I stamped:
Step3 - (Going Gray) SU!, Step 2 - (Going Gray stamped off), Step 3 (Going Gray stamped off 2x), Step 4 - (Going Gray), Step 5 - (Black) Memento

For the yellow flower I used:
Step 3 - (Summer Sunrise) Papertrey Ink, Step 2 - (Dandelion) Memento, Step 1 - (Dandelion), Step 4 - (Going Gray) SU!, Step 5 - (Black) Memento

Stay tuned for some exciting news from KSS - any guesses??  In the meantime, I hope you have a chance to visit the rest of the KSS Crew today and that you are enjoying a great day!

  1. Lovely card! I've seen several like this of late -- black and white with a "pop" of color -- really like how they turn out!

  2. I love the gray background you have created with the giant sunflower! It really makes your yellow sunflower pop!! That tiny sentiment is perfect for this sweet design! Awesome work, Julie!

  3. Wow! I don't think I have never seen the sunflowers with b/w colors! This is so beautiful Julie!

  4. How pretty! Love the sunflowers in the shades of grey!

  5. Wonderful B&W conversion Julie... really makes you pop of color sunflower - shine! Great job on the sketch too!
