Less is more - Pastels


This is my entry for the http://simplylessismoore.blogspot.com challenge. I got out my cuttlebug folders and chalks for this one. I used a combination of the pencils and block chalks and a Q tip. Just a small flat back pearl to highlight the centre. Hope it fits the challenge.

  1. Crikey Sandra, you were quick off the mark!
    Chalks are quite difficult to use I find, if you want to get evenness of shading. Care needs to be taken to ensure that areas are sympathetically coloured. This certainly is a pastel card.
    Thanks for joining us again. See you next time!
