Hi everyone! :) To be very honest with you, as much as I love pastel colours, I am guilty of not using it much on my cards. So I thought I would use the opportunity to use it today.
My first idea for the card was to combine two stamp sets because I find that when you do this, you are actually "extending" the life of your stamps.
I've recently purchase the Intense pencils and I'm pretty excited! I really love them but I'm still very new with it. I started out by embossing the leaves and little animal with white embossing powder.
I, then, coloured the darkest part of the image with the pencil.
After that I simply took my water brush and start to pull the pigment to the rest of the images. This gives a smooth gradient of dark to light.
That's all! I cut out all the images and made a scene on the card :)

If you find that the colour became too light after you've added water, you can use the water brush and take the colour directly from the pencil :)
