KSS Crew Challenge #1 - Silver and/or Gold
Welcome, stampers, to the first KSS Crew Challenge!!
For today's challenge you will use silver and/or gold as a key element in your design. It is not necessary for you to use Kitchen Sink Stamps to create your card for the challenge, but remember, if you do, you can enter it in the What's Cook'n with your Kitchen Sinks Stamps? Contest.
Our host for this first challenge is Mario Colosimo, owner of Kitchen Sink Stamps. Read all about the challenge on the KSS blog.
If you haven't already done so, hop on over to Paper Craft Planet and join the Kitchen Sink Stamps Group. You can load your design to your blog or any public gallery. Use kitchensinkstamps or KSS in your keyword entry. Then simply link your project to the discussion in the Kitchen Sink Stamps Group at Paper Craft Planet. We cannot wait to see your sparkly creations!!
So, this is the card I have created for this first challenge!
Remember that silver and gold shimmer paper found at Target that had everyone buzzing last week? Well, that is what I used to create my Silver Bells card for today's challenge.
To create the bells, I started with the top bell, masked it, and added the second. I then masked the second bell and added the third.
