Using Pastels to Color an Apple Harvest Card

using pastels

Using Pastels to color your images and die cut outs is a great way to add subtle color to your projects. The Apple Blossoms Dies are perfect for using pastels to color. I’m in love with these dies! There are multiple dies of the flowers and leaves! The Dies have two large flowers, two small flowers, three large leaves, and six small leaves. So with just two passes of the Cutting Machine, I had all the flowers and leaves cut out for this card! And there is a cool Scalloped edge that cuts out two scallops!

I used the Gorgeous Grape pastel for the centers of the flowers and Granny Apple Green pastel for the leaves. Then I added the scallop strip left over from a previous card.

Using the Soft Pastels to color your flowers and leaves is quick, easy, and looks beautiful! And even better – they are on sale this week for $8.10! So a little over $1 per pastel! Order before Sept 14th to get the discount.
