I've been playing again with my Pan Pastels and thought I'd share all the wonderful colours that I shall be dabbling with !
The card that I've made is for a woman at work, it's her birthday on Tuesday and I wanted to use bright colours so I thought I'd combine the red, yellow and green. I stamped the text from a Wendy Vecchi set and the star with Versamark. I then blended the Pan Pastels over the ink.
This was the result ! I sprayed it with a misting of hairspray to seal it (not quite the right thing but it seems to work!)
I stamped the tulip, from the same Wendy Vecchi set, with Versamark too and blended more Pan Pastels over it. The little green 'blobs' are made using a Viva Paper Pen. The background panel is part of a master sheet I made using the plastic bag and ink technique. I've stamped the border stamp which is another Wendy Vecchi one, along the bottom.
The sentiment is from a Papermania set and the frame is part of the Tim Holtz Tag die. I've cut the butterfly using the Tim Holtz Mini Butterfly die from acetate and then used alchol inks. I put three blobs of Viva Paper Pen down the centre and unfortunately they merged together ! Some buttons and a bit of Ideaology and that was it ! Just need to remember to post it now tomorrow morning !
We've got one of my nieces coming round tonight for a meal. She decided that for her birthday instead of a present she would like us to cook her a meal ! So, there's a bit of smoked salmon, skate wings and creme brulee, I think that should go down well !
I'm entering this card into the Our Creative Corner challenge which is Totally Transparent - I've used some acetate for the butterfly.
