Lavender and Lace

Hello, Judy Woodland here with another Mod Squad Challenge. Your challenge this week is Lavender and Lace. You may use either lavender or lace on your card, or both, and the lace can be real lace, a beautiful lacy die cut, or a stamp that is reminiscent of lace.

This week our sponsor is the wonderful stamp company Kitchen Sink Stamps.

These stamps are amazing. Most have a multi-stamp feature that lets you get great detail in your images using several colors. There is real dimension with a 3-D effect! And one of the best features of this stamp company is that there are color recipes for most of the multi-step stamps, so you don't have to guess what colors to use. There are even alternative colors if you don't have the inks that are suggested.

Maria from Kitchen Sink Stamps is a member of our Mod Squad Challenge Facebook Group so feel free to say Hi or ask any questions. 
$25 GIFT CERTIFICATE to the store. You can pick your own goodies and there are a lot of choices!

Here's my sample card:

 And this is a closeup of that beautiful stamp.

The stamp I chose is the set called Mother's Cameo. This is a multi-step stamp consisting of 5 different elements. I chose Lavender and Lace as the challenge because the stamp reminds me of my 93-year old mom who loves lavender.

Here are the Ingredients:
GKD Lovely Lavender, Edible Eggplant, and White Card Stock
Graphic 45 Secret Garden Patterned Paper
 Kitchen Sink Mother's Cameo Stamp Set
GKD Edible Eggplant and Lovely Lavender Ink
Memento Sweet Plum Ink
