New KSS Stamps & Leslie's Challenge?


Hi there! Yesterday was a fun mail day. I had several new stamps waiting to be inked up and loved:) I was so excited to play with the new 3-Step Adornment set from Kitchen Sink Stamps.
Leslie made the most gorgeous card creating a beautiful background from scratch, you know paper, ink and stamps. Leslie asked if anyone would be interested in doing that type thing as a challenge. I got so excited and made this journal. I used vanilla cardstock and stamped the French Script in black. I used one of the stamps from Looks Like Spring and Wonderful Wings. I stamped all kinds of smaller stamps in Choc. Chip, Bravo,Saffron. For the tassel I used Saffron, Cranberry and Bravo. I cut it out and attached it with foam tape. Then I disstress the heck out it using several different disstress inks. Finally I tore a piece of paper and sponged along the torn edge to make the slight pattern. This was a blast to make I hope you like it!
Have a great day:)

This is gorgeous, Dee. Love how you used the stamps and inks to create the aged, vintage look.

Wow! You did a fabulous job on this, Dee! I love how you stamped on a diagonal, added all the different stamped elements and aged the paper. It looks like it was fun to put together and watch how it developed. I love it!
