Pastel Workshop Card

A friend of mine bought the pastels and wanted some ideas of how to use them so I came up with this card for her.

I stamped the flower with white craft ink then embossed it with white embossing powder - the fun part was colouring in the flower using a blender pen and the pastels, it really pops on the black card! When we had finished coloring in the flower we quickly zapped it with the heat gun again to set the pastels.

The ribbon started out in life as plain white grossgrain, we staped along the length of it with versamrk ink. chalked up a cotton ball then dabbed it along the length of the ribbon, to get the colour to teally stick we then rubbed the ribbon hard with the cotton ball.

The Scribble Wheel background was coloured using a blender pen and pastels.

All up it quite a simple card to do although a bit time consuming, but I think the results justify the time, and it is so much fun using one colouring medium to get so many different results.
