More Medallions for Sunday Stamps

Happy Sunday! I hope you are having a fabulous weekend. Mine has been crazy-busy as I hosted back-to-back jam-packed card buffets this week. So much stamping so with many wonderful friends!
Today marks the start of a new colour challenge over at Sunday Stamps. Check it out...




Here is my project for the Design Team:
 

I couldn't resist pulling out the Make a Medallion stamp set once again for this challenge. I am so loving the ease with which it allows me to create beautifully detailed images with multiple colours! Here is a better look at the gorgeous images...

To create my medallion I began by inking my first image with Rich Razzleberry ink and then, using a sponge dauber, I added some Blackberry Bliss (yep...pulled out my all-time favourite retired In-Colour!)...you can see the ombre effect...so very cool! I also used Mint Macaron and Pool Party ink to fill in the rest of the medallion. I absolutely LOVE this colour palette!

I die-cut the medallion using the Layering Circles framelits and then adhered it to a Lacy Doily that I had inked with Blackberry Bliss ink. I love the way the shape of the doily mimics the medallion. I finished it off with a (retired) Iced Rhinestone embellishment.

The sentiment is heat embossed in silver. I layered the card front on a Rich Razzleberry card stock mat before mounting it on a Smoky Slate card stock base. I added some silver 5/8" satin ribbon and layered some Rich Razzleberry ribbon over top...I really like the contrast in the textures of the two ribbons. Of course, I couldn't stop at just one rhinestone, so I added a few more for extra bling ;)

On the inside I stamped  a few more medallions on a layer of Whisper White card stock and added it to the Smoky Slate card base.

I am sooooo going to miss this beautiful stamp set when it goes away in just a few short days. If you haven't yet gotten your hands on it, you had better hurry...time is running out!
