Spectrum Noir April Challenge – Use Pastels

A new challenge is up over at Spectrum Noir, the theme for this month is Use Pastels. This is the perfect theme for this beautiful springtime season!


Here is my challenge inspiration for you. I colored this stamp using Spectrum Noir Blendable colored pencils on Spectrum Noir Ultrasmooth Premium White cardstock using Gamsol blending solution to blend and soften the colors. I chose this cardstock because I knew the smooth surface would help keep the colors from becoming too vibrant, thus aiding the soft pastel look.
