SCS Featured Stamper - Cathleen

When I saw that Cathleen, aka ctorina, was today's featured stamper, I knew I would need to find time in my schedule to case one of her gorgeous cards. Cathleen is a master of sensational layers and stunning bows! I chose to case her Wham Bam! Thank You Ma'am! 

My card was created using 3 Step Hydrangea by Kitchen Sink Stamps. I used the stem from KSS Multi Step Lilacs and the script from Letters from the Past.

This is the order of the layers I use when stamping the hydrangea as well as the colors I use to create a purple blossom!

The leaves are stamped in this order: Layer 1 SU Kiwi Kiss, Layer 2 SU Old Olive, Layer 3 SU Always Artichoke.

The script was inked in SU Soft Suede, stamped off once, and then stamped over the masked blossom and leaves.

Papers: Whisper White, Soft Suede, and River Rock by Stampin' Up, Gold Damask by the Paper Studio
Embellishments: Pearls and Silk Ribbon
