Pastel Palette

Today I look some time to finish a card I had stared days ago, actually I coloured the image in at my Scrapbooking Class and put it aside to use on a card..one day!!  Well today is the day, I was inspired by the Featured Stamper on SCS this week - rachelhope13 and what a gorgeous gallery - there is something there for everyone!!  I was inspired by this card.



I embossed the CS with the Stylised Flowers embossing folder and sponged around the edges with Distressing Ink, the image was coloured using SU Inks Pads and a Blender Pen, I love going to Ann's classes, you come away with so much - it is great to meet a Demo who is all about the art involved and not about the money, Ann finds such pleasure in getting us inspired and equipping us with as many skills as she can - her art and her friendship have come to mean so much to me!!

I sponged around the image and  layered it onto brown CS (Choc Chip I am thinking!) added the pink CS behind and of course the flower....now I don;t have those gorgeous swirls that Rachel has, so used the punched branches that have been sent to me by one of my Twisted Sisters Lesley (aka Marleygo) thanks Lesley!!  I have finished off with pink half pearls and that gorgeous button that I was given amongst a 'gazillion' others - it just fits here beautifully!!



Thank you for coming by and for your comments - I love knowing you have stopped in, it means so much to me!!  God bless you!
