Easter Pastels with Gemma

Today I’m sharing a card using this month’s theme of Pastels. I used some pretty pastel embossing powders to make an Easter themed card.


I began by choosing some Pretty Pink Posh Easter Eggs to emboss. I wanted to copic colour the images, but it’s not advised to use copics on embossed images as it can damage the nibs. To get around this, I used my stamping platform to first stamp the images in a light ink colour.


Once I’d copic coloured the images, I put the piece of card back in my stamp platform, stamping over them again using WOW clear embossing ink. I then embossed them using Pink, Yellow, and Blue Opaque Pastel embossing powders.


I layered the Easter Eggs with foam tape over some leaf and berry images from the Pretty Pink Posh Spring Wreath stamp set. 

To finish, I stamped a sentiment from the Pretty Pink Posh Easter Eggs set, then added some PPP clear sparkling jewels around the card.



Have a lovely day,
Gemma
