My Pocket of Pastels

I have really enjoyed this round of Ustamp with Dawn and Friends Classes, Clubs and Camps.
The tutorials have been outstanding.
Here is my recreation of Tanya Bell's My Pocket of Pastels, go check her blog here she is amazing artist.
 This is a album with 10 Techniques to use your Stampin' Pastels.
I got my Stampin' Pastel with my starter kit and I hadn't used them a lot because I didn't many techniques for them.
 I have used my Pastels in nearly every card since making this.
The album is made with envelopes and in each is a sample of the technique.
 Colouring Technique, This will look familiar to the Every Moment Thank You Card I made the other day.
 Checkerboard Technique.
 Popping Pastels Technique.
 Shimmer Pastels Technique.
 Chalkboard Technique.
 Sponge Burst Technique.
 Embossing Pastels Technique.
 Pastel Highlight Technique.
Emerging Pastels Technique.
The 10th technique is Stained Glass Technique.
I haven't done this technique as I didn't have any vellum, it's on order so I will be making it later in the week, I will be back with it later.
I have used lots of different Stamp Sets to make these.
Stamps: Petal Pizzazz, Every Moment, Just Believe, For Everything, Nature Walk, Bring on the Cake and Oval All.
This was a great project, and now I'm using my Pastels so much more.
Thanks Tanya for the inspiration, you are awesome.
