Inspiration in pastel

The weeks are flying by and another Inspiration Monday over at The Crafty Bloggers Network Challenge Blog, there are some wonderful inspirational cards on show from the Design Team check them out HERE.  There are also some fab prizes, the sponsors this month are Just Some Lines Digital Stamps and Petal Lu flowers

This is my DT card using a Just Some Lines Digi stamp and some of those lovely Petal Lu flowers.  I wanted this card to represent the "pastel" element of the challenge, although the cute images make me think of Spring.

I have used Just Some Lines "Emo Hello World" to create a card and gift tag.  Both the card and tag were printed with the digi image which was then coloured with promarker pens.  The image  on the card was masked and an oval aperture set over it so I could stamp some script in clear embossing ink, this was heat embossed with clear embossing powder to create a resist effect when coloured.  The oval aperture was placed back over the image and the background was coloured using broken china DI and a blending tool.  I left the card plain and simple with just the greeting "treat yourself to a wonderful day", but the possibilities are endless for adding embellishments if postage is not an issue on the card.

The tag was made in the same way as the card using the resist technique, but reversing the aperture.  The beautiful Petal Lu flowers and pastel green and pink ribbon were added to finish the tag.

You still have until the end of the month to enter the challenge nd one more inspirational Monday next week to encourage you.
