Pastel Resist

I participate in SDiegoGal's monthly technique swap (can be found here on SCS's Demo side). This month, it was pastel embossing (technique can be found here in SCS's resource section.). I had to improvise a bit because I didn't have white embossing powder, so I stamped in white and embossed in clear... almost the same, right? I never use my pastels, so I thought this would be the perfect time to try a new technique and dust off the pastels. I'm not impressed with the results. It didn't photograph so swell, but the effect is just not for me, I don't think... maybe I just did it wrong, and maybe it's better if you actually use the CORRECT supplies, huh? Anyway, it just wasn't speakin' to me... Anyway, enough whining, here's what I used...
Cardstock - Merigold Morning (finally cracked open this stuff!), Regal Rose, Handsome Hunter, and Basic Black
Ink - Whisper White Craft
Accessories - Crystal Clear embossing powder, spiral punch (yup, couldn't resist using this thing!)
