This week's SCS Color Challenge uses the colors of Pretty In Pink, Regal Rose, and Old Olive.

Earlier in the day, I was inspired by scrapbookgirl44's Bud Basics card using the Reverse Masking Technique, and prepared a card for next week's stamp class based on it. I love the look of this technique, plus it's easy! ... so I decided to use it for this Color Challenge. On this card, I stamped three panels using the Reverse Masking Technique. HERE is a great tutorial for Reverse Masking on SCS. I chose the easy route using post-it notes.

This card uses my all-time favorite set, Bud Basics. Two flowers and leaves are cut out and popped up on dimensionals with Pink Rhinestone Brads in the center. I also used a sponge to add some Pretty In Pink shading within the three masked panels.

So very pretty. Love the technique with these colors.

I did not get this set last summer, and now I think I need it. Many ladies have said that it is one of their favs.
