Poppin Pastels with Retired Colors
This was the last card we did at my Stamp Club last month. I warned my girls that I was using retired colors - I have SO much paper in retired colors that I'd hate to see go to waste. They completely understood and were more interested in learning the technique anyway. Thank goodness. We stamped the flower image in VersaMark ink on Whisper White Cardstock and then used sponge daubers to apply pastels to the image. I CASEd (copy and show everyone) the card from Julie's card found here. Thanks for the great idea. I love simple cards that can show a great technique and give a big WOW when people see it being made. If you haven't tried this technique, give it a try! It gives you unlimited options for ink colors even if you don't have a lot of Stampin' Pads. All you need is VersaMark and Pastels!
