Power Poppy Pastel Primroses
Hello friends!  Once again, Friday has arrived, and that means a Power and Spark challenge over at Power Poppy.  This month, Ally is challenging us to use pastels.  I thought the Primroses, from the Potted Primroses set, would look lovely embossed in white and colored with a soft color palette.  I originally went literal and tried using pastels on kraft.  I liked the look but I decided instead to go more vintage.  Shocker isn't it.  ;)

I stamped the Primroses with Whisper White ink (SU!), embossed them with White ep (Ranger), and colored them with Tombows.  I used quite a few Dies and Punches and will list those at the end of the post.  The sentiment is from the set Dynamic Duos: Peonies and Tulips set.

Here's a closer look at the image.

That's it for me today, but you won't want to miss what the following Bloomers have to share.  These gals have some serious skills!

I hope you all have a most fabulous weekend.  I'm heading to the mountains to spend some precious time with some dear, dear stamping friends.  Excited doesn't even describe how I'm looking forward to it.

   Happy Stamping!
