Hi folks, my card this morning is for our new challenge at PanPastel UK and this week our theme is Easter. You don't have to use PanPastels to enter this challenge, but we love it when you do. If you fancy trying them out, do pop over to Your Creativity Store as Berni has a fab 10% discount plus free p&p at the minute! All you have to do is use the code panpastel when you check out.
For my card I've created a little scene using PanPastels and an Indigo Blu Easter Bunny stamp that came free with Craft Stamper.
PanPastels blend so beautifully, its really quick and easy to create a faux brayered scene in a few minutes. I began by tearing a sheet of copier paper to create a mask for the hills. I started by laying down a layer of white panpastel and then added some Ultramarine blue to create the sky. I don't have any of the tints yet but its so easy to blend you can make beautiful pale colours by blending with lots of white. I then worked down the page using my mask and various shades of green PanPastel (I used Permanent green, Chromium oxide green shade and Phthalo green shade)
I stamped in the bunny rabbits using blach archival ink and then added lots of foliage using stamps from Chocolate Baroque and Autumn Leaves. To embellish the card I added a couple of little glittered acetate butterflies from a Crafty Individuals stamp, some raffia and a lovely prima flower.
