10 Minute Monday with Kitchen Sink Stamps

Today I am using images that I haven't worked with in a while. These beautiful swans are from a Kitchen Sink Stamps set called  3 Step Love Birds. After stamping the swans, I clear embossed them as my masking technique to add the colored background. (post sponsored by Kitchen Sink Stamps)

  1. I had to come and visit you. I love swans...and how grandly beautiful yours are Lynn.
    On top of my list when I visited England was to see swans...I was blown away by how big they were.
    In Australia they are half the size and beautifully black.

  5. My goodness, your swan cards are stunning!! My favorite is the first one with the serene and elegant tone. Amazing you're able to do this in 10 and 20 minutes. I'm also loving how you're showing both because it's interesting to see what additional time can bring to cards. I never keep track of the time it takes me probably because I'm a slow poke.

    Thank you for your kind offer to contribute cards to the wonderful RMH cause!! I'll definitely forward you my mailing address! You are a dear! Thank you Lynn!
