KSS Ten Minute Monday

Another Monday has rolled around so that means it's time for a new Kitchen Sink Stamps 10 minute design. Today I have created a one layer design which allows the beautiful long-stemmed flowers to have center stage all to themselves. I cheated a little with the sunflower, hydrangea, and daisy by using the lilac stem to get the height I wanted. It works for me!

After stamping the blossoms, I scored a 3/4 inch bar across the bottom of the card front from side to side jumping over the stems. I then masked that section and sponged a little color above and below it to make the added sentiment pop.

If you are inspired to use this design with your Kitchen Sink Stamps, please share your creation with our Kitchen Sink fans in the KSS Gallery and include keyword 10MC71.
