Hi there, how's your weekend going? Mine is very lazy so far after another hectic week at work but its time to stop lazing around and tell you about this weeks challenge at PanPastel UK where our theme is Animals.
I created the scene by applying white PanPastel over my card and then masking a sun. I added the sky with Ultramarine blue PanPastel and then used torn paper to mask the hills and added the background using Permanent green PanPastel. I added the sun using Dairyalide yellow and Red iron oxide PanPastels. I used tree stamps from Chocolate Baroque, stamping them in Memento Rich Cocoa ink and then stamped the leaves using Bamboo leaves and New Sprout memento inks. Once i'd stamped in the trees I added a little more green PanPastel for some shade. PanPastels blend so beautifully it only takes a couple of minutes to create a background, I love em!!
I don't have many animal stamps at all so I've used a digi stamp called 'Mother Deer and fawn'that I was lucky enough to win a few weeks ago. I've coloured the image with promarkers and cut it out before attaching it to my PanPastel scene with 3d foam pads. The sentiment is a stamp from Whimsy stamps. I didn't want to add lots of embellies so I just matted and layered the scene on white card and then dark green card.
It looks a bit like a spring morning, and hopefully spring isn't too far away now. I noticed that the tree outside my craftroom window is covered with little buds so hopefully we won't have long to wait for some better weather.
