If Nothing Ever Changed


This past Wednesday Gina K. had a new technique challenge on StampTV called Pullin' Pastels. I wasn't too sure about it at first, but my goodness is it easy and a WOW technique.  

I took a piece of In the Navy cardstock and with a cotton ball rubbed various shades of green, blue and yellow pastels to completely cover the cardstock.  Then I inked my butterfly image from the Eclectic Summer StampTV Kit in Versamark and stamped it the center of the In the Navy panel.  To set the chalk, I lightly misted the panel with aerosol hairspray.  I finished the card by using Basic Grey Lime Rickey designer paper, ribbon, and added the quote from the stamp set Take Flight.  A nice simple card with a WOW effect! 

Have a great day!
