Pastels

Hi crafters. I decided to experiment with chalk pastels on a card. I stamped the flowers from Altenew’s Adore you stamp set and used Simon says Stamp rose gold powder to heat emboss them. I also drew in some stems freehand with a Versamark pen and embossed those as well. I then coloured the flowers with pastels. I did this directly to the cardbase which was smooth. I tried a little blending with a stump but then a lot of the powder comes off. More blending may have been possible if I was drawing on paper with more tooth. I ended up just leaving the colouring a bit rough. I wiped the powder off the embossing and added more if required. I tried some pastels around the flowers as well. The sentiment is from the same set. I sprayed the card with fixative spray to set the pastels.

I am entering this card in the Altenew July inspiration challenge.
