I would like to say a big thank you to the lovely people who left advice on my blog yesterday about my pictures. It has spurred me on to keep trying, I know I'm never going to be Man Ray but I'll keep on trucking (as my 5 year old would say). The above pic was taken on a beautiful day but alas yesterday the weather was pants and I was unable to get any decent shots, ok half decent shots by my standards lol.
The technique I used on this card is called 'poppin pastels' and no it's not a euphemism for something sordid for you non card-making readers lol. It's when you stamp the image in versamark then dab over the it with chalks. This is the first time I have ever tried this technique and I have to say I love it.
Thanks for stopping by and see you tomorrow maybe (don't know yet - I have no pictures aaahhhh, lets wish for some sun) xx
