K is for Kitchen....

There's a colour challenge over at Less is More using colours from your kitchen .....love it! Casology ...in a row and a birthday card for Addicted to stamps  and  Time out case this with a twist  I knew immediately what I wanted to do....getting the stamping right and deciding how to put it together was the challenge.

  My kitchen is simple high gloss units,  all white walls and paintwork and black granite work tops, with my gorgeous pink tulip splash back...not everyone's cup of tea but I love it!

A lot of masking and placing followed, I have covered the flower strip with acetate to give the gloss effect and added a black strip for my work tops.... and this is what I came up with - unfortunately I didn't have a tulip stamp but I did have my gorgeous daisy stamp, poetic licence ha!

  1. Ooohhhhh, I LOVE your tulip splash back! The card is a super take on the challenge and looks incredibly stylish. What a great idea to use acetate as 'gloss'. Thanks so much for a fab LIM entry!

  9. I am loving your classy, unique splashback Susan. In fact I've seen lots of them like this but wasn't brave enough or given the green light from the family last year when we were deciding what splashback! Your're super creative and love how you've interpreted it in your card. Absolutely beautiful and a perfect showcase of your kitchen. Great challenge combo too and thanks for playing along with us at Less is More this week. Sarah

  14. Well done with your masking, you've done it perfectly and love how you didn't colour all the flowers as well. Its a very stylish birthday card and a wonderful CASE of Therese's card too. So glad you could join us at both TIME OUT and ATSM!!

  15. Loving that splashback, tulips are my favourite so it gets a huge thumbs up from me! I love how you selected to colour just a couple of flowers, really effective panel.
    Thanks for sharing with us.
