CAS Colours & Sketches Challenge # 204

This is my first official post as part of the Design Team so welcome. As of this month, challenges are now going to be posted weekly on a Tuesday at 1.00 pm (GMT) and they close the following Monday at 11.00 pm (GMT).

This first challenge for 2017 is from Karen and it's a colour one. I have to admit that I love this combination - it's so pretty.

I've chosen to use one of the stamp sets from the 2017 Spring/Summer Catalogue - So in Love.

To make this card, I stamped the medallion outline on the Whisper White layer so that I had something to "aim" for when stamping the other images.  The leaves were then randomly stamped in Soft Sky and the buds in Pink Pirouette.

Once I'd finished the stamping I glued the Whisper White to the Soft Sky base card.

I then stamped another medallion onto a scrap piece of Whisper White. I stamped it in Sweet Sugarplum and then stamped the sentiment in Soft Sky in the centre.  I used my Stamp-a-ma-jig to ensure I stamped the sentiment in the correct place.

The stamped medallion/sentiment was then cut out by hand and added to the card front with Stampin' Dimensionals.

Of course I also stamped the Whisper White insert too.

The challenge closes on Monday (9 Jan) at 11.00 pm so be sure to get your card posted in the links before then.

Thanks for visiting today and please feel free to leave a comment.
