Kitchen Sink Monday

I love these gorgeous Kitchen Sink lilies! I decided today that I wanted to create a frame for my sentiment tag by making a wreath of lilies.

In order to do that I needed to create two masks for the lilies and two masks for the leaves. After tracing an oval in the center of my white card front, I started stamping lilies and leaves at the top and worked my way around the penciled oval overlapping them as I went until I was back where I started. I moved the masks from lily to lily as I went.

This is the color formula I used for my lilies:
Layer 1 - Pink Pirouette
Layer 2 - Pretty in Pink
Layer 3 - Pixie Pink
Layer 4 - Purely Pomegranate
Layer 5 - Bravo Burgundy

This is the color formula I used for my leaves:
Layer 1 - Old Olive stamped off once
Layer 2 - Old Olive
Layer 3 - Wild Wasabi

I popped up the sentiment tag on 1/8 inch dimensionals and ran the ribbon under it to tie the bow.
