Pastel Shades Mixed Media Cards

Good Morning :)
I am back today to share my DT cards for this weeks C4E Recipe Challenge, all the details, entry and inspiration can be found HERE.
This week we would like you to share projects which use Pastel Shades, we have a fab prize up for grabs kindly donated by Stamping All Day. As always there is gorgeous inspiration from the super talented design team, worth a look if nothing else!

I made two cards this week both for Mother's Day.
I used the same technique for creating the background on both cards, the difference between them is in the embellishment clusters and the stencil used for the modelling paste.

For the background I stamped with a script stamp on to watercolour paper then
added Distress inks to a chicken wire stencil and used it like a stamp over the top.
I then added modelling paste through the same stencil for this card and the opposite version of the chicken wire stencil for the second card.

I love how you can still see the background through the modelling paste, so pretty!

I used an old chipboard piece from Crate Paper with some thread, net, flowers and a clay heart I made at this months C4E Crop workshop.

The card was finished with some splatters of silver and white paint.

The second card was made in the same way only I used a different stencil for the modelling paste and slightly different embellishment cluster.

Unfortunately I decided to add the stamped stitched border after adding the embellishments which was hard work! Note to self add stamped border before embellishments lol!

So there you have it two cards for Mother's Day using pastel shades :)
You have until midnight GMT Thursday 26th March to submit your entries for a chance to win a fabulous prize from Stamping All Day!
Have a lovely weekend, thanks for stopping by!
