Pastel Colours

Some time ago, I won a box of Stampin' Up pastels in a challenge. I really haven't exploited them very much and with the Pastel Colours theme this week at our challenge, "Less is More", I thought that this was the perfect time to try.
I stamped the SU image with Versamark and then used a cotton bud (Q tip) to add the colour. I used Almost Amethyst, and Mellow Moss with a hint of Sage Shadow.
The paper is from Fred She Said and I coloured the ribbon with a Copic marker as I didn't have any that even approached the correct shade.
The sentiment is from a recent SU Sale a Bration  set, stamped in Almost Amethyst ink.
We had the most amazing week at "Less is More" last week, with 231 entires. Wonderful!
If you haven't ventured over there and you fancy the idea of Clean and Simple cards... do pop over and join us... we'll look forward to seeing you there.

  6. What a sweet card Chrissie! I love the soft look of the Poppin' Pastels! I'm amazed that you have had a minute to stamp with all the comments you are leaving! Your Less is More is such a great success!

  7. Love the Colour Chrissie and like the stamp very much, all so pretty in pastel.

  8. Lovely card Chrissie - I saw it on the challenge but hadn't realised you used chalks. I can never get such vibrant effect as this with chalks. Keep up the good work with the challenge.

  9. What a gorgeous card. I am so excited I found your site--you have such great taste. Thanks for the ideas using chalks.

  10. Gorgeous card Chrissie, I am ashamed to say I have chalks and have hardly ever used them... this card has made me think I should have a try.

  13. I am so behind with my commenting this week Chrissie, sorry chick....
    Like everyone else I am so glad you created the Less is More challenge, I was never a CAS gal, just couldn't get it right but you and Madi have helped me so much with my fears, thank you....
    The way that folks have come together and taken the time to see each others designs is wonderful, it's changed my opinion of the way blogging seems lately. There are people out there who do want to do more than just enter a challenge for the sake of a prize....

    Your card is lovely, the balance of the elements is perfect...

    Thank you for your inspiration
