Hi everyone, I am sharing a card I made using a technique I found on Pinterest. You can see this beautiful card Here. I have done a couple of practice runs and as of yet still have not made one that makes me as happy as her lovely card....but I will keep trying as I love this look.
You use chalk pastels as a base, I chose pinks, yellow and green which I smeared with my fingers after putting the color down with the sticks. Then I off stamped a leaf image on copy paper to soften it before adding it to the background. Added a flourish stamped with Versamark, heat embossed with a fine detail embossing powder then a run through the Big shot with my Script folder finishes my background.
Love the sketch this month at Stamplorations , they also have a Case challenge if that is more your style.
Here are a couple of quick photos I took while in process and before putting my card together.
I think my embossing folder was a bit too busy but I still like it, just not perfect yet.....oh well, just an excuse to try again.
Stop by Stamplorations and play along, I still don't have any of their stamps but I really need to order some, don't you think?
Thanks for the visit and have a great week.
