Moxie Fab Tuesday Trigger - Pastel Pretties

Super cute pastel jordan almonds were featured in this week's Tuesday Trigger.  

I immediately thought of a lesson in the Online Card Classes Pattern Play class earlier in March.  Jennifer McGuire used Distress Stain in Picket Fence to alter a bright patterned paper.  

I bought an 8 x8 Heidi Grace Cartwheel paper pad at Joann (because it was cute).  I loved the patterns, but they were too bright for the pastel look.  A wash with the Picket Fence stain took care of that! 

I cut the bird with the Silhouette Cameo (free easter shapes from last week).  I'm still working on getting the right blade settings for some of the different media types, so the cuts aren't perfect.
