Hi again, my second post today and this morning card is my DT project for PanPastel UK where our theme is 'Use Ribbon', I think we all love to add some ribbon to our projects so it should be a nice easy one this week. My card is very camera shy, which is a shame as I love this technique!!
Its a very quick and easy background made by applying white PanPastel to white card and then blending in Ultramarine Blue PanPastel with a large Sofft sponge. I used stamps from Chocolate Baroque 'Texture Fragments', stamped with versamark and embossed with clear sparkle embossing powder. I then added a little more blue PanPastel over the embossing, you'd think it would create a resist but it doesn't, the embossed images seem to initensify when you apply the PanPastel and the contrast between the velvety matt PP and the sparkly EP is so pretty. You can see it a little better in this pic
I loved the background so much I didn't want to cover it up lol so I just added some lace from my stash and coloured some seam binding with Ultramarine blue PanPastel . I used a gorgeous postage sentiment from Whimsy Stamps, I love these as they have a coordinating die to cut them out and they are soooooo cute! To finish off i've added some sparkly pins from Crafty Boots and some little AB gem flowers to pick out the flowers in the background. I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
