This months swap rules were to use the Poppin' Pastels technique and at least one eyelet. I hadn't done this technique for a while so it was great to do it again. For those that don't know, the Poppin' Pastels technique is stamping with Versa mark then using the sponge daubers with chalks (Stampin' Pastels) to colour the image. The chalk will stick to the Versa mark making the stamped image pop out from the card. It's very effective. I love it.
Stamp Sets : Garden Whimsy
Ink : Versa mark
Card : Whisper White, Rose Red, Pretty in Pink
Accessories : Stampin' Pastels, sponge daubers, Crop a dile, metallic eyelets silver, Gingham ribbon light pink
For my card I've gone for the soft feminine look. What do you think?
I hope the other members of the group like it.

For those who missed out, these are the other cards we made.
Sending you my love : This one is much the same as the So Swirly card in a previous post. Except I've used the Circle of Friendship Stamp Set. The colours are Kraft, Blush Blossom and Whisper White.
Time spent with Friends: We did a bit of water colouring on this card. We used the Stampin' Pastels and Aqua Painter with the Time spent with Friends Stamp Set. And used the Sanded background Stamp with Versamark on the base card. It's a bit hard to see in this photo but it looks really good. The words and butterfly are stamped in Certainly Celery on Certainly Celery card stock. With a bit of Gingham ribbon, light pink.
Always on my mind : This design I found on the demonstrator website and I only changed it a little bit. The stamp set is Pick a Petal and Stem Sayings. The colours are Blue Bayou, Confetti White, Soft Sky, Purely Pomegranate, Groovy Guava and Kraft.

This is one of the cards we will be making. I got this from the Demonstrator website, but changed the colours. I'm liking the colour River Rock more and more. The words at the bottom of the card say "best friends listen to what you don't say"
I will also have retired stamp sets (pre loved, good condition) for sale on the day.
