Hi there, we're celebrating the Diamond Jubilee at PanPastel UK this week :-) Next weekend we'll all get a lovely long weekend off work to celebrate so let's hope the sunshine lasts. I've got to admit I found this theme a bit of a challenge and had to rack my brain for ideas so I'm looking forwardto seeing what you come up with. You don't need to use PanPastels to take part in the challenge but its great when you do.
After a lot of dithering around I decided to make a royal themed card but using pink, white and turquoise instead of red white and blue. I've used one of the beautiful Chic Script digital papers by Lesley Wharton at Chocolate Baroque, Ii've added some extra colour with turquoise and magenta panpastels. I've clear embossed a couple of patched and stamped some text here and there with versamark and brushed with a little silver mica powder.
I got the pic from google images, printed it out and use matte multi medium to transfer the image to some canvas. I've matted it on some white card coloured with more magenta PanPastel and punched with a MS punch. The roses were made with Tattered Pinecone die and the flourishes with Die-namics fancy flourish, again coloured with magenta and turquoise panpanstels. I made the bunting with a stamp from Artistic Stamper, stamped with versamark and added colour again using magenta and turquoise PanPastels. To finish off i've added a few sparkly gems.
I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
Deep Ocean challenge: swirls
Paper Pretties: Bold bright colours
Sisterhood of Crafters: old fashioned
The Stamp Man: Card for a Queen
