Technique Tuesday: Poppin' Pastels

My goal is to try a new technique every Tuesday and this is what I did yesterday.   The technique is called Poppin' Pastels and I love some of the cards I've seen done with it.   This was the first time I'd even opened the box of Pastels and I had no idea how fun they could be!    I think I'll color the stems in with a marker and then do the chalks on the flowers if I use this stamp again.  It is rough to get those little lines in!

I've wanted to do a filmstrip card FOREVER and I finally did one this week.   I hope I can figure out some different things to put in the "picture" part and background because it is such a super cute idea!
