Stamplorations CAS #16 Mid Challenge Inspiration

Hello everyone! I am super excited to be Guest Designing for the Stamplorations CAS Challenge. Here's my second card for this month's challenge.
This month's optional color twist is Any Pastel Color.
You can ofcourse enter a CAS card even if you don't use any pastel color. You can  link up to 3 CAS cards. Non-STAMPlorations products are OK. 
Prizes: $10 GC for the winner; $5 GC to the top picks.
For my card, I first created the background using cracked pistachio distress oxide ink. I then stamped the lotus from the Lotus Love stamp set and colored it with color pencils. Finally stamped the stem and leaves.
I stamped the sentiment in gray as I thought black ink would look too harsh.
I hope you like my card, please hop on over to the Stamplorations blog for more amazing inspiration from the rest of the DT.

Stamplorations CAS #16 Challenge

Hello everyone! I am super excited to be Guest Designing for the Stamplorations CAS Challenge. This is my first card for the challenge.
This month's optional color twist is Any Pastel Color.
You can ofcourse enter a CAS card even if you don't use any pastel color. 
I chose pale yellow as my pastel color. I first stamped the Large Happy Sunflower with Fossilized Amber Distress oxide ink, then I masked out the sunflower and added Fossilized Amber Distress oxide ink around the edges.
I stamped the sentiment in gray as I thought black ink would look too harsh.

The Heart Desires Challenge #10

Neat and tangled
Now over to my card. I loved the map background in the moodboard so I die-cut patterned paper with a map on it. I first sprayed repositionable adhesive at the back of the patterned paper and stuck it onto white cardstock. I then die-cut the panel with the Neat and Tangled Hexstar Cover Plate and peeled off the hexstar pattern, leaving behind the remaining patterned paper pieces sticking onto the white cardstock backing.
The cute girl and teddy are stamped on Strathmore Watercolor paper and colored with Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers.
I hope you like my card. Do hop on over to the Heart Desires Blog for more amazing inspiration from the rest of the Design Team.
