Pulled out my pastels for this card! I forget how much I like using these! The background was made by stamping with bleach. The main image was colored with pastels and a blender pen. I also used pastels and and a cotton ball around the edge of the bottom layer. The stamp set is Embrace Life.
My SU pastels were one of my first stamping purchases and I still have them. The case is broken (held together with a rubber band) because "gasp" I dropped them once. A couple of cakes broke but like a Timex "took a lickin' and keeps on tickin'".
When I started making cards I had absolutely NOTHING! I used some markers that belonged to my kids to ink my first stamp set! I colored with crayola colored pencils and bought some white Georgia Pacific paper from Wal-Mart. My first few cards were made with (hold your breath) construction paper. I thought I was really something with my blender pens and pastels! I mean I could almost make something pretty. Luckily I don't have the first few cards I made! They were pretty sad little things.
