Animals at PanPastel UK

Good morning, our theme this week at PanPastel UK is 'Animals' so I've decided to make another card for the Christmas Box. I've had this card in my head for a while so it was good to have chance to actually make it. As always our lucky winner will receive a fab PanPastel Starter set from our lovely sponsor Berni at Your Creativity Store.


I began by creating a scene using PanPastels and stamps from Stampendous (stamped with distress inks). I made a frame by using some waste from die cutting which I coloured with ultramarine blue tint PanPastel and the stamped with a Stampers Anonymous music stamp and versamark ink, I then dusted shades of brown PanPastel over the top. I used the same technique for the Christmas Carols' sentiment and cut it out to top the frame.  'The polka dot card is from Hunky Dory, distressed with a kraft knife and more brown PanPastels. I used Burnt Sienna and white panpastels to shade the reindeer die cuts, the spots are actually a snow stamp embossed with white EP. You can see the details a bit better in these pics.



I've added pastel blue seam binding ribbon, a little wooden button, bakers twine and some little beige faux berries. I also added some delicate holly die cuts, I was lucky enough to with this lovely die from the generous Teresa a couple of weeks ago.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
ABC Christmas: anything goes
Craft a Scene: Majestic Mountains
Fussy and Fancy: Anything goes
Jingle Belles: living creatures
Sparkles Forum: Traditional Christmas
Stamp and Create: winter Wonderland

Thanks for visiting today
Have a lovely Sunday,
