Technique Tuesday - Pigment Pastels

Today I am going to show you a technique using your Stampin' Up! White Craft ink and Stampin' Up!'s Pastels.  You will need:

White Craft Ink
Stampin' Up! Pastels
Aqua Painter
Basic Black Classic Ink
Heat Tool
Detailed Image Stamp

First, stamp your image on your cardstock using the Basic Black Classic Ink and heat set.

 Next, take your Aqua Painter and pick up ink from your White Craft Ink Pad.
 Color areas of your image that you want DARKER than others.  Once you have colored all areas, heat set.  Make sure you clean your Aqua Painter right away to remove any Craft Ink.
 Color your image using Stampin' Up! Pastels.  You will begin to see that the areas that you colored with the white craft ink stay darker after you are done.

 This technique works best using the darker pastels.
Here's my card that I made using this technique.  Hope you enjoyed it!
