Hi there folks, I've been battling with the weeds this weekend so the thought of sipping a cocktail and having a paddle in the sea is very appealing lol. Our theme at PanPastel UK this week is 'Fun in the Sun', hopefully you're getting some sunshine where you are but if not the new challenge is a great excuse to create a little sunshine
Right on to my DT Card, but first apologies for the dreadful photo, I'm blaming the weather as its been a very cloudy (I'm not complaining though as at least it hasn't rained all weekend)
I've used a shaped card black and of course PanPastels to create the background. I've used ultramarine blue plus the tint and shade for the sky and rubbed out areas for the clouds before highlighting with a little paynes grey, magenta and hansa yellow tint. I've use yellow ochre and a little burnt sienna for the beach and for the sea I've used shades of turquoise panpastels.
The gorgeous little cutie having fun on the beach is a Marianne clear stamp, I cut her out and popped over the ribbon with foam pads. I've added some texture to the sand and the waves and a little sandal charm to act as a stopper for the easel. The charm was bright pink and glittery, eeeeeeek now annoying when I'd looked everywhere for it but I used gesso to change the colour and painted it with acrylic paint and added stickles to the tiny flower. I've used some secret ingredients for this card, but you'll have to watch this space to find out more lol.
