Good morning, we've got a new challenge today at PanPastel UK and our theme is 'Use a stamped image'. I've treated myself to a few new colours and couldn't resist using Violet and Magenta panpastels for this card. You don't have to used PanPastels to join in our challenge, although of course we love it when you do.
I've used shaped card blanks to create this easel card. I simply blended Magenta and Violet Pan Pastels, adding a little white to create the background and stamped the swirly flourishes from Chocolate Baroque's butterfly bliss stamp sheet in black archival ink. The ginormous butterfly is from the samp stamp sheet, I stamped it with versamark and embossed with clear sparkle EP and then coloured with Pan Pastels, adding some paynes grey for some shading. I added some white highlights with a gel pen and cut the butterfly out. I popped the wings up with some silicone glue. The sentiment is also from the same stamp sheet, stamped with versamagic ink in Eggplant and cut with nesties labels 4, I used the PanPastel left on my sofft applicator to add a little colour around the edges and then added a little purple bow.
I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
