Poppin' Pastels

This was the 3rd Pastel Perfection card we made last Saturday at Terrific Techniques, and can you go past a Pastel Class without including Poppin' Pastels??? This basic technique is one that every stamper should try! You get such a soft almost out of focus feel to the stamped images when you use it, the key is just to pounce the pastels (with a cotton ball or dauber) onto the image rather than rub them.
I don't have Upsy Daisy or Inspired by Nature yet to play with but those sets are absolutely perfect for this technique.
I should also mention that this card is a (very loose) CASE of a card I saw on SCS, I didn't keep the link but if you stumble across this and it's yours let me know and I'll give credit where credit's due.
Stamps: Organic Grace, Sincere Salutations
Ink: Mellow Moss, Versamark, Certainly Celery
Cardstock: Lavender Lace, Certainly Celery, Whisper White, Pretty in Pink
Accessories: Stampin Pastels

Still have to try this technique - am having too much fun with my watercolour crayons! But you are making me want to bring the pastels out with your great cards!
