It is time for new challenge over at the Seize the Birthday blog and if I'm being totally honest, the topping this time is not a favorite of mine. The mere mention of the word Pastel makes me cringe, topped only by the word Purple.
And in true transparency, I really, really, really struggled with the making of this card.
I began my card by stenciling pastel pink and pastel lavender dye inks onto a white card panel. I then cut the panel in two using a decorative die. I stamped the sentiment onto a second white card panel using grey ink. To make this a shaker card I added a piece of transparency behind the exposed diamond and then adhered two additional side pieces from fun foam. I added in some pastel confetti to the middle, adhered the finished panel to the front of a white card base and adhered a sprinkling of confetti to the front.
My pastel loving daughter loves the card. I'd much prefer it in something deeper and bolder. What do you think?
I invite you to play along with us at the blog and personally challenge you to create a pastel only card that will force me to change my point of view. *wink*
