One for the boys at PanPastel UK

Hi there, Sunday again so that means its time for a new challenge over at PanPastel UK and this week our theme is 'One for the boys'. You don't have to use PanPastels to play along but of course we love it when you do :-)

For my DT card I've created a seascape using PanPastels. As always I started with a layer of white PanPastel and then masked the sky before blending in Ultramarine blue, Turquoise shade, Phthalo blue shade with random horizontal stroked. I used a pencil eraser to create the waves and added deeper blues under the peaks of the waves.

I used Ultramarine blue and lots of white to create the sky and then added the cloud using white, paynes grey and a little yellow and magenta. To give the effect of rain I just dragged the sofft knife down from the cloud. 

The little lighthouse scene was stamped with rubber stamps from Chocolate Baroque on some white card, coloured with PanPastels and derwent pencils and cut out, I layered it up with silicone gel.

The background was made using Yellow Ochre Shade, Burnt sienna shade and a little Raw Umber shade and the shell stamps (again from Chocolate Baroque) were stamped with distress inks.

To finish off I added some shells and a nautical looking knot, I've no idea how I tied it but it looks a bit like a sailors knot lol

I'm entering this in the following challenges:
Colour Create: Yellow blue and white + optional shells
Glitter Geeks: Nautical
Secret Crafter: A mens card

Don't forget our lucky winner gets a fabby PanPastel Trial Set from the lovely Berni at Your Creativity Store

  7. Fabulous. Those Pan Pastels must have been made with you in mind. The sea is fantastic - and the clouds - so realistic. Very clever background scene and finished of beautifully with the lighthouse, shells and knot.
