well what a bad little blogger i am!

Geesh, where did the days go!? All the sudden, last night, I realized it had been QUITE a few days since I blogged!

This week the CPS blog is being sponsored by Kitchen Sink Stamps. Kitchen Sink carries multi-step stamps that are really interesting to use! I got to work with the NEW Multi-Step Lil' Elephant that was just released. There are four stamps for the elephant, and using a different ink color for each stamp, you create an almost photographic looking image! It's pretty cool. There is definitely a learning curve, as you figure out what colors to layer, but there are lots of
great tutorials and suggestions on the KSS website!
So, this is my card for the CPS sketch, using Lil' Elephant. I chose to use a monochromatic color palette, and used some pretty Bazzill cardstock for my striped background. I used Close To My Heart ink in Gray Wool, Plum Mist, Smokey Plum, and Majestic Mountain to stamp my elephant. I really like how the purples on the elephant turned out! (which is quite amazing, since I ususally HATE using purple!)
Hope your Monday is off to a great start!
Thanks for stopping by!
