Hi there, my tag today is for the 'Secret Garden' Challenge at Dragon's Dream Tag It On. I've not been too well for the last few weeks and my mojo seems to have vanished but I couldn't resist getting my PanPastels out and playing along with this challenge
I've used stamps from Creative Expressions 'Lost Garden' stamps, I've added some colour with PanPastels as colouring really hurts my neck at the minute so I can't use pencils or promarkers. Trust me to get a pain in the neck lol. Anyway I was quite pleased with the detail I managed to create with a the dinky little socks that go with the sofft tools.
I wanted my Secret Garden to look a bit dark and spooky but light outside (I know what I mean lol) so I used much lighter PanPastels for the foreground and then added lots of black and blue PanPastel for the sky. I added some swirls of darkness creeping out of the garden with black PP. I splashed on some drops of silver firework ink for the stars and added some green ribbon and black lace to finish off. I'm also entering this tag in the following challenges:
I brake for challenges: anything but a card
Lawnscaping: Stamp a scene
