Having dug out my Stampin; Up pastels to use for the card for our "Less is More" challenge I realised that I loved the effect they gave, so I got our this little Stampin' Up wheel and inked it with Versamark before adding the colours with a cotton bud. I used Bashful Blue and Mellow Moss. The flower images have a dotty texture and this shows up really well with the pastels.
I made the sentiment on the computer and matched the ink colour fairly closely to the Bashful Blue. The butterfly is also from Stampin' Up. It was inked with Bashful Blue and is cut out with the SU Butterfly punch with a little added bling. These are my Jewels for the challenge at My Time to Craft this week, for which this is my DT card.
Actually, looking at this card now, I think I may go and add a bunch more gems as the centres of the flowers in the border!
Do you think that's an improvement? It's certainly more jewelly!
Come and join us, I'm sure you'd love to get out the bling!
