Popping Pastels

For many months now, some of my ladies who attend my card classes have asked me to show them how to use their Pastels. I finally got around to showing them on Friday and this is what we created. I must admit it was a bit of a challenge for me. I was having lots of trouble getting inspiration. Then I noticed the card on the front of the Stampin' Up! Pastel Box and the ideas flowed from there.
I have used the Flower Fancy Stamp Set to decorate an image which I incorporated on a card, gift box (design from Papertrey) and book mark. Iused only the background stamps of the large flower, the small flower, large and small leaves. The colours are Cameo Coral, Certainly Celery, Mustard for the flower centres and highlighted the flowers with Regal Rose and Ruby Red with a dash of Sage Shadow on the leaves. I threw in a bit of ripped So Safron Cardstock on the corners with ripped velum at the back to finish off the cardfront. The words are from the Sale a Bration Set "Whimsical Words". I started by stamping the flower image with Versamark Ink and using my daubers, gradually built on the colours starting with the lighter colours first. I then used a cotton bud to dab the darker colour onto the flower edges to give depth and create shadows. I will be holding this class again on February 19th if anyone is interested. Simply contact me here to RSVP.

Happy Daubing
