The "Pulled Pastels" technique is one of my favorite to do. It is fun, easy and makes a big impact. Sometimes I play around with colors and cards and get some fun images. None is better then my old stand-by, Lovely as a Tree.
Stamp Sets: Lovely as a Tree, Jolly Old Saint Nick (retired), Plant Hope, Blessings from Heaven
Papers and Inks: Bashful Blue Pastel, Versamark, Bashful Blue, Basic Black, Whisper White, Shimmery White
Tools and Accessories: Pastels, Taffeta Ribbon, Glue Dots, Daubers, Dazzling Details
Pulled Pastels (some call this Reverse Pastels) is accomplished by rubbing your dauber all over a dark piece of cardstock. Ink a stamp with the Versamark pad and stamp onto the chalked cardstock. The stamp will "pull" off the chalk, leaving a negative image. It works great with a bold or very detailed image.
Tip: If you don't have any of our daubers, you can use a cotton ball. I tested it and found it used a lot more of my pastels, but it will work in a pinch.
I will post another sample on Monday, December 19....please check back.
