Ornate Style in Pastel Colours

Hey Everyone! I’m trying the Ornate Style in Pastel Colours today. Going really soft, I’m not sure if its even too soft?

For this card I white embosses on Fluid Watercolour paper, and very loosely coloured over it with my inks using an aqua painter.

Eeek! you can see how bad I am with a craft knife here, but I feel that I need to remove all that extra white space from this image for some reason!

The colours I’ve used for this card are Soft Sea Foam, Blushing Bride, Rococo Rose and Seaside Spray. The back ground layer of Soft Sea Foam has been embossed with the Subtles Embossing Folder.

  1. Hello, Alisa. Yvonne from the US here. In answer to your question to yourself as to whether your pastels are too ‘soft,’ the answer is no. They are perfect. It reminded me of my first watercolor class many years ago. I was new not only to that paint medium, but also to the instructor and was quite intimidated just by her appearance (she is one of my dearest and sweetest friends and has been since that class, but others have echoed my first impression of her), so I was quite nervous. When she leaned over my painting to caution “Soft!!! Soft!!!,” I was so scared that I barely applied any actual color to my painting of coffee beans and leaves. That painting ended up being one of my favorite, and hers as well, as she commented she had never seen anyone have such a ‘soft hand’ with watercolor…so, in summation, sometimes, just the barest of a hint of color works out to being the best, which yours definitely is/are. I always enjoy your posts.
