Viva La Verve July Week #2
This is my first attempt at doing the Poppin' Pastels technique. Thanks to Gina K and her Stamp TV! I am a visual learner, so I went to her site and found her tutorial.
I started out using SU's Echoes of Kindness stamp set. I had the image all done and adhered to the card, then I smudge it with my finger. Ugh! So I had to start over but I just wasn't happy with the imgage's outcome. So I changed my mind and decided to use Verve's Because of You set. I love the effect it has with the soft color behind the images. I was going for a simple, soft look. I haven't used any purples in ages and the only reason I used it today was because my chalk colors are very limited. Red, orange, blue, green and purple. These flowers remind me of lavender. The look like they are swaying in the wind, don't they?
