Stampin’ Up! Soft Pastels Techniques 2

These are two of the cards I made during this week’s Facebook Live video. You can watch it on replay on Facebook or YouTube. I go live on my Nancy’s Nifty Notes Facebook Page every Wednesday at 10:00 AET. You can check to see what time that is where you are at this website.

The first thing I did on this video was apply the chalk dust scraped from the pastel sticks to Basic White cardstock that I had embossed with a couple of embossing folders. This first one is just chalk powder.

On this green and yellow one, once I’d applied a layer of colour to everything, I lightly rubbed a Versamark ink pad over the raised edges of the embossing, then added more chalk. The Versamark allowed more chalk powder to cling, intensifying the colour.

Here’s what I used to make these:
