Soft Pastels

Today’s card and video feature coloring using the Soft Pastel Assortment and a Wink of Stella brush to apply the color. This method sets the Soft Pastels so that the chalk doesn’t smudge as well as adding a nice shimmer to the image.

Simply scrape (I used the spatula end on my Take Your Pick Tool) some of the chalk from the Soft Pastel stick onto a clear block. Use the Wink of Stella brush to pick up the chalk and then apply to the image.

Paper Dimensions:

  • Basic Black Card Base 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″ Scored at 4 1/4
  • Friendly Hello Designer Paper 5 1/4″ x 4″
  • Basic Black 3 1/4″ x 3 1/4″
  • Basic White 3″ x 3″
  • Basic White 5 1/4″ x 4″ for inside liner

Be sure to watch the Soft Pastels Friendly Hello Video Tutorial to see this technique. During the video I mentioned making this card with the image die cut with a circle die. I just had to give it a try, and created the card above. I switched up the flower colors on this card as well, just to keep it interesting.
