KS Monday - Just Because



Hello everyone~

It’s Monday and also time for Kitchen Sink Monday! I made one card using the sketch from Friday Sketch Carte Challenge (FSCC31) and CR84FN Color Challenge 35 (CR84FN35).


As soon as I saw the color combo, I knew what I wanted to use for the image ;) I used Multi Step Lilacs, and Simple Sentiments for the saying. I kept clean to emphasize the softness of the lilac… I can say, “Less is More” for this one :)

I stamped the lilac was stamped as following these steps: 4th – Memento grape jelly, 3rd – Memento lilac posies, 2nd – Memento lulu lavender, 1st – lulu lavender (1 x stamp off). Then, I masked the lilac and stamped leaves & step with : 3rd – Memento bamboo leaves, 2nd – Memento new sprout, 1st – new sprout (1 x stamp off).

I edged and sponged lightly with Memento london fog. To finish off, I embellished with baker’s twine and silver pearls.
