Kitchen Sink Stamps Monday - Lily of the Valley with Tutorial

Happy Kitchen Sink Stamps Monday, thanks for stopping by, I hope you had a great weekend! Stepping away from my Holiday cards again, to share another card created with the Multi Step Lily of the Valley that's available in the Limited Edition Year of Thanks II Tin.

I love using the Kitchen Sink Stamps Multi Step Images they have such great depth and detail and look just like photos. A lot of times I get comments left on my KSS posts telling me they liked my coloring. I think that's the biggest thing stampers don't understand about these images, I'm not actually coloring them, I'm adding color with inks using Multi Step Stamping.


Let me show you what I mean. I'm stamping my images in reverse order, stamping darkest to lightest. I didn't take a photo of #5 (sorry), it was stamped in Stampin' Up! Always Artichoke.


Next step, stamp #4 in Stampin' Up! Old Olive. See how the images line up when stamped.















Next stamp #3 in Stampin' Up! Kiwi Kiss. Notice the Lily area is still White. When you place your inked stamp over the stamped image, you'll see exactly how the next stamped layer will fit.














Next stamp #2 using Stampin' Up! Certainly Celery. Notice how more of the White space is filled in, leaving just the Lily.















The final step adds the shading the to image and the Lily. Stamp #1 in Stampin' Up! Soft Sky.

This particular color recipe can be found here. Maria has put together a ton of great color recipe resources using many Kitchen Sink Plates, along with various stamp companies inks, be sure to check them out, I'm sure you'll find them very useful.

The stamped panel is layered on a Chocolate Chip panel, where I used the Torn Edges Technique. The sentiment comes from the Kitchen Sink Stamps set 3 Step Hibiscus.
