Sail On!

Good Monday morning!  I hope you all enjoyed a nice weekend and are ready for the brand new week ahead, I know I am!  It's supposed to be hot and steamy here and we have some fun family activities planned!

But first, it's Kitchen Sink Stamps Monday and I'm here to share the another of the new KSS release sets, Sailboats.  This is a great mini set - a nice way to give KSS stamps a try if you're hesitant!  A great set for masculine cards, for your sailor friends, for those who love the water and it's a great add-on set for the Lighthouses set!

I played along with the Mix Ability Challenge at SCS this week for this card.  The challenge was to use some bold colors and then tone them down a bit with gesso or white paint.  There's a great video along with the challenge - check it out.  I basically used the technique from the video, it was so fun and gave me just the look I was going for!

I used only the Step 1 stamp from Sailboats to stamp my silhouette sailboats.  The sun was stamped with the sunflower center from Multi-Step Sunflowers.

Thanks for stopping in today, be sure to visit the rest of the KSS Crew and have a great Monday!
