As promised, today I’m sharing part 4 – and the last – of my series featuring the “Soft Pastels Pastels” from Stampin’ Up!
Expand your colouring repertoire with the Soft Pastels Assortment! These easy to use chalk pastels work with a variety of colouring tools like Stampin’ Up!’s Sponge Daubers, Blending Brushes, and Water Painters. Here’s a fun tip: Try scribbling your pastel chalk on a scrap piece of paper to create chalk dust, then use your Water Painters to create your very own watercolour paints!
The pastel chalk material also works great with images stamped in VersaMark. Simply stamp your image with VersaMark ink, let it dry, then colour over it with the pastel markers and your choice of colouring tool. The Soft Pastels Assortment comes in a cardboard case for storage.
- 8 chalk pastels in Stampin’ Up! colours: Coastal Cabana, Daffodil Delight, Granny Apple Green, Gorgeous Grape, Mango Melody, Mossy Meadow, Night of Navy, Poppy Parade
I’m sure it’s obvious by now that I absolutely LOVE using pastel chalks on my cards and projects! If you have missed the first three video demonstrations, click on the following links:
- Part 1 – The Basics & Tool Options
- Part 2 – Pastel Chalks with Masks (Stencils)
- Part 3 – Stamping on Candles and Tile Coasters and using chalks with Water Painters
In today’s video, I am demonstrating one of my ALL TIME FAVOURITE stamping techniques, and of course, it features our pastel chalks! This technique is so easy and so quick but I’ve always just LOVED it! You’ll see why, when you watch the magic appear…..
As I mentioned in my video, I NEVER demonstrate with retired Stampin’ Up! sets, to avoid disappointment for those who want to get them but can’t. However, I am making an exception today by using the “Lovely as a Tree” retired stamp set. This is still one of my all-time favourite sets and this image was the one used when I first learned this technique (unfortunately, it’s been so many years, I can’t recall the name of the demonstrator who shared it). This particular tree image is spectacular with this technique, in my honest opinion.
Product List for ALL Cards
If you have our old version of Pastel Chalks in your stash – I hope you pull them out and give them some love! If you don’t have any, then you may want to order the Soft Pastel Assortment – I promise you won’t regret it! As you can see from this series, there are so many different ways and techniques that you can use pastel chalk. While this series is over, I promise there will be many more cards using the Soft Assortment Pastels coming your way. I also plan on using the butterflies that I demonstrated in today’s video on a scrapbook page and I promise I’ll share that with you as well.
Have a wonderful weekend and HAPPY STAMPING!
