Technique Tuesday - Pulling Pastels...

It is Tuesday and time for another technique!  This week's technique is Pulling Pastels.  I have no idea why it is called "Pulling" Pastels but here goes!  You will need:

Pastels (also know as chalks)
Versamark pad
Heat Gun
White embossing powder
Embossing Buddy
Black cardstock - or another dark color
 First, use your Embossing Buddy to remove all oils from your cardstock.  Since you are using white embossing powder, it will show up if you have little specks of powder left on the cardstock.  Next, stamp your image using the Versamark, cover with white embossing powder and heat set with your heat gun.

 Using your Pastels, color the white embossed image using vibrant colors.  Do not worry if some of the pastels show up on the cardstock.
 Continue to color the entire image using your Pastels.
 Using a dampened Q-tip (not saturated), clean off the cardstock around the image.  It does not need to be perfect.
 That completes the Pulling Pastels technique - easy peasy!!!!
