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.

Here's my take on the moodboard.

Coloring on Kraft cardstock with color pencils was so much fun! I just love the My Favorite Nut stamp set from Neat and Tangled, it is such a delight to color!

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.
I hope you like my card, please hop on over to the Stamplorations blog for more amazing inspiration from the rest of the DT.
