Poppin' Foral Pastels

Here is a card I made using the Poppin' Pastel technique:

You can view and comment on the card here, at my gallery: Simple Florals Pastels.

Here is how you can do this yourself. First, stamp your image in VersaMark (are you starting to get the impression that your tool box is not complete without this ink?). Next, tap a Q-tip full of chalk pastels over your image. The pastels will stick to the tacky ink, even after it dries, and create a very soft look. This technique also allows you to place color just where you want it to be--some green on the leaves, a little blue for the water. It's a lot of fun. I hope you enjoy trying it out.
