The background were made with panpastels and Chocolate Baroque stamps. I used versamark with stamps from Dusky Damask for the background panel, stamping over the pans and then dusting with more panpaste (I used violet and yellow/green pans) it gives a gorgeous effect. I coloured the image with Graph'it Markers, these pens blend wonderfully using the Mix'it. I ts hard to describe so I thought I'd take a pic so you could see what I mean, You just use the Mix'It as a palette with your alcohol markera and the colours on the Mix'it can be reactivated with the blender pen so there's no waste. How cool is that??
You've got to love the storage boxes these markers come in too. As you can see the markers look quite chunky, I've only got small hands but they are really comfortable to work with, I'm itching to get my paws on some more of these fabby pens.
