Hello friends! Kim here with you today, I'm so sorry for the delay in posting today. My card today features the Pretty Potted Florals and Words of Life.

I started making my card I began by covering a piece of white cardstock with Pan Pastels. Then I stamped the sentiments from Words of Life repeatably in VersaMark ink on top of the Pan Pastel covered paper. I then went over the piece of stamped paper with the Pan Pastels again. Once the Pan Pastels hit the VersaMark stamped words, the ink grabs the pastel and creates a tone on tone look. Cool, right?

I cut down my paper to fit onto a standard card base. My flower pot was stamped, colored, and fussy cut. I did the same with the butterflies. I die cut and embossed a piece of black cardstock, which serves as a home for my flower pot. 

Why not give the Pan Pastel technique a try's a great way to make quick and easy backgrounds! Quick tip...this technique works best with solid stamps. 

I hope you enjoyed today's project! Just a reminder that Sweet 'n Sassy is holding a 25% moving sales! Happy crafting!
