Pretty Pastels

Hello! Yesterday, I enjoyed creating a card using pretty pastels for the new Simon Says Stamp Flickr Challenge "Play with Pastels".


I created a soft watercolor wash on the background and stamped/heat-embossed the sentiment from the SSS exclusive set Big Scripty Greetings using silver embossing powder. Then I adhered the panel to the card. Now I stamped, colored and die-cut the bird and the flower and adhered them with foam tape. Finally I added clear sequins.
I enjoyed creating a soft and pretty pastel card very much before starting on fall/winter cards :)


Thank you for visiting and have a great day everybody!

Vanessa
