Recreating Helzie’s Colour Pop Card!

I twisted my original card sample to include this colour pop technique.

Creating Subtle Backgrounds with Decorative Masks & Pastels

Hello Everyone,

Today I am sharing a technique to create backgrounds using the Soft Pastel Assortment.

Using this medium gives a much softer colour to the background than can be achieved with inks.

You can see how I made this card in my video tutorial….

The piece was simply layered with coordinating cardstock with a die cut sentiment added with dimensionals

This card used a different mask but the same pastel colours. This time the sentiment was cut with the Double Oval punch.
