This fortnight the AAA cards challenge is a Sketch and as an optional twist there's the use pastel colors add on.
Our sponsor is Happy Little Stampers and you could win the Smile stamp set.
For my card I masked off the three strips and inkblended what I considered pastel Distress Oxide colors: Squeezed lemonade, Cracked pistachio and Tumbled glass.
Then I stamped the sentiment and the arrows from the Happy Little Stampers set called Mix mash. I've used darker shades of Distress oxides, so they would show, but I made it much less pastel like this way, I've used Mowed lawn, Mermaid lagoon and Carved pumpkin. I had to elongate my arrows to fill the bar.
Added three glittery enamel dots in matching colors.
I know my strips are wider than the sketch, but I really wanted to fit my stamps inside. I think you can still see the sketch though ;-)
