Another Medallion

The Stamp Set Challenge for the Elite Challenge Blog is the Medallion stamp.  You can find the Medallion stamp set in the Autumn-Winter Mini Catalogue and I'm finding it so versatile to work with.  There are so many different techniques you can use, and achieve so many different looks.

I've stamped the whole image in So Saffron, then used a sponge to ink the edges with Pumpkin Pie.  I also used the Pumpkin Pie Marker to colour the centre before punching it  out with the 1 3/8" circle.

I've layered a white circle under the original punched out circle with some dimensionals, and I've added more dimensionals under the orange circle.  Just as an extra touch, I've added a flower and half pearl from the Pretties Kit.  To get the greeting so white on the ribbon, I have used white embossing powder.
