A New KS Crew Challenge is in the kitchen

It is a new month … which means a new KS Crew Challenge – #22, with our hostess, Makiko!

This month, Makiko challenges us to use our Kitchen Sink Stamps to create our own custom designer paper. I must admit, I think one of my favorite things to do when stamping, is to make my own designer paper! The sky is the limit! So for this challenge, I wanted to try and simulate a soft, elegant and monochromatic designer paper from K&Company (sample below)…. and see if I could create something close to it, but Kitchen Sink Stamps style. I am happy how it turned out. I added a clear embossing powder over the large butter fly to make it pop a bit form the background of flowers and leaves. As for the hardware,  I had silver which wasn’t really working so, I took a marcasite embossing powder and changed it.

All the images (excepted mentioned below) are stamped using: Step #3 – Imperial Purple – VersaFine, Step #2 – Sweet Plum – Memento, Step #1 – Lulu Lavender.

For the Lilies: Step #5 – Imperial Purple – VersaFine, Step #4 – Sweet Plum – Memento, Step #3 – Sweet Plum stamp off – Memento, Step #2 – Lulu Lavender –  Memento, Step #1 – Angel Pink.

Smaller Butterflies: Step #3 – Imperial Purple – VersaFine, Step #2 – Sweet Plum – Memento, Step #1 – Sky Blue.

Thanks for stopping by today!
