Transformations Blog Hop

Welcome to my stop on the Club Scrap Transformations Blog Hop.

For me, a greeting card can simply be a thing of beauty to look at and enjoy. I decided to use the Transformations rubber stamps, along with white ink and pastel chalks to create a colorful panel for the front of a card. It is so pretty, you might just want to keep it for yourself!

How to create this card.

1. Use Pan Pastels and foam applicator to blend color onto Translucent Paper. Since skin oils from your finger tips can cause spots, use a scrap of paper to hold matte in place while applying pastels. Rub on color until matte is covered. I chose softer colors for my matte, but it would look just as pretty with bright colors. It's your choice!

2. Flip matte over so colored side is facing down. The colors will look more muted and blended on this side.

3. Use White Pigment Ink to rubber stamp onto the matte. The image I chose is from the Transformations Collection Unmounted Rubber. Trim the paper to fit the front of your card.

4. Attach the artwork with four decorative brads from your stash.

I hope you enjoy this quick and easy technique.
