Technique Tuesday – Poppin’ Pastels

August 25, 2009 at 8:00 am 3 comments

This Tuesday I’m using the Stampin’ Pastels again to show another technique – Poppin’ Pastels.

Poppin’ Pastels is another super easy technique. Simply take your stamp, and ink it up in Versamark. Stamp on your paper or cardstock, then sponge pastels over it. To make a nice effect, try layering more two or more colors. The purples on my card are actually two different shades of purple pastels (Elegant Eggplant and Perfect Plum) – it gives a nice variegated effect.

One tip for using the pastels – they do tend to smear a bit, but you can keep it from smearing by spraying your image with a little aerosol hairspray when you’re finished.

    oooh – this is great. Wonderful colors! Great use of the medallion stamp. I’ve seen so many great things made with this stamp it makes me want to get it too. Sigh, wish list is too long!
    Great embellishments too
