Monday Notes in the Kitchen.

Happy President’s Day with another Kitchen Sink Monday !!! For today’s KSS Monday, I would like to share a set of swan note cards I made for a dear friend’s birthday. I used the set 3 Step Love Birds to stamp the swans. She loves swans and I think she is going to be very pleased to receive these special cards.

I did something very different when I stamped these swans. Normally, I stamp the steps in order, starting with my lightest ink for the first step and ending with my darkest ink for the last step. WELL, not with this bird! LOL! I stamped out of order … and I am very happy how these white swans turned out. 😀

Stamping order for this swan: Step #2 – Going Gray (stamped off 2x’s), Step #3 – Going Gray (stamped off 1x), Step #3 – Going Gray (full strength), Step #1 – Frost White pigment ink from Color Box, Step #5 – Smokey Gray and then before stmping, reink only the beak area with Onyx Black – both inks are from VersaFine. All other inks are SU! unless noted. By stamping Step #1 with the Frost White pigment ink out of order, it was easier to register the previous steps and the white smooths out the grays leaving the swan looking more white than gray. 😀swan-notes-1-close-up
