Hello there!  It’s time for a new challenge at CAS Colours & Sketches and this week we have some pretty pastel colors to play with. The colors practically shouted “Do a floral card!” so that’s the direction I took with them.  I pulled out an oldie-but-goodie stamp set that has stamps to create the different layers and shading effects.  To get the two shades of green for the foliage, I stamped the image off on scrap paper once before applying the stamp to the image panel.  Then I selectively inked the rubber again and stamped it over top the first impression.  I originally planned to just adhere the image panel directly to the card base, but that seemed a little too plain, so I decided to add a very narrow mat of green.  It’s really difficult to tell in the photo, but I used shimmery cardstock for the image panel, so in real life the card has a hint of sparkle to it.  The only color in the challenge trio that I actually own is the darker pink, so I substituted the closest colors I have to the lighter pink and the green.

I’m going to enter this into the current challenge at AAA Cards, too.
