AAACard challenge #94 and Less Is More #336/337 challenge

I hadn't entered challenges in a long time, but now I can't stop...  
Today I'm playing along with yet another challenge.  What's one more?  
Actually this is two more, since this is a joint challenge with AAA Cards and Less Is More.


The challenge parameters for CAS Game #94 and Less Is More #336 & #337 are each:

a CAS one layer card
and a colored card base






I chose an Gina K Designs In the Navy 100# card base, and stamped the cluster of Calla Lilies from Sentimental Calla Lily with Versamark Ink for no-line coloring.  The ink shows up realy well on the navy cardstock as long as you work rather quickly.  

I left my Calla Lily stamp in my MISTI, because I wanted to re-stamp and clear emboss my image once I colored it.

I first colored the majority of the image faintly with a white pencil before adding the colors.  This way I was able to get some brightness on the navy cardstock.

Once colored, I put my card back into my MISTI and embossed the image with clear embossing powder.  It deepened the lines, without altering the color very much.

Then I added the sentiment with Versamark ink and white embossing powder.

Thanks for visiting!  Please check out my other challenge cards and the GKD Blog Hop in my previous blog posts.
