Pastel... quilt... kites... not sure.

This one's a bit funny.  Thought I'd combine the Paper Smooches inspiration challenge with the CAS Friday's black and pastel challenge.  I didn't get what I expected.  At all.


Yeah.  Not so much in the pastel range.  The yellow is pastel.  The light pink is pastel.  The green and dk. pink... not so much.  Part of the background, definitely pastel.  The other part, the part I clear embossed... not even close.  I did my best with the green- I just don't have any light green Copics so I got what I got.  The dark pink is the right shade, it's just much brighter than I realized.  And that's that.  This is actually where it started and it didn't go wildly non-pastel until I added the dk. pink to the mix.  The green was bright but covering it with yellow helped.

Stamps: (Sunny Side Up: sentiment & kite): Paper Smooches, (Print Pattern): Stampin' Up
Ink: (Black Momento): Tsukineko
Paper: Stampin' Up
Misc: Copics, Clear EP
