Dusting off the Pastels

It dawned on me about a week ago - when Patty Bennett mentioned about getting your Pastels out - that I haven't looked at my pastels, since I let my daughter used them months ago! Heck, it may have been last school year... and before that who knows! I can honestly say I haven't made the best attempt in using them since I have received them! {YIKES!}.

I looked around the craft cave and pulled the 5th Avenue Floral out, to use. I figured the larger the area to try this technique the better it will be! I wasn't disappointed! 

Technique: Stamp your imagine with Versamark, then grabe your Daubers, Pastel color of choice and stamp the imagine... use with some force for darker color ... its easy!
I cut the image and then popped it up on Dimensionals, for a better effect. I used BURGUNDY.. it doesnt look like it does it?  I am not sure when I last used Burgundy color for anything! I love the look and the technique was very easy! Definately you must try! 

Thank you Patty for your inspiration! 

Have a great day! 

Hug the ones you love!

Your pastels look beautiful with this image, I rarely use mine either (or my watercolor pencils or crayons either!)

Your card is beautiful, I have that set and haven't used it yet. Love your background too. I did just use my pastels on a Halloween card and think I use them more often than those water color crayons. Beautiful card.
