Portfolio Pastels & Ink


I blended a few colours of portfolio pastels onto a piece of white card and stamped a TH Classics image in seedless preserve distress ink.


I swiped over the Ellen Vargo diamonds in black stazon and stamped the main LP image in black versafine. I had to dry it with the heat gun over the Portfolio pastels as it sat on the top. Once dry, I used a white posca pen to high-light parts of the stamped images.


And finally I added white gems to the cheeks and purple pearls to the middle of the diamonds.

I am entering into the That's Crafty challenge this week as they would like to see some ink.
