Hi and Happy Sunday, my favourite day of the week :-) Its also a brand new challenge at PanPastel UK where our theme this week is 'Springtime'. You don't have to use PanPastels to enter but its great to see that more and more people are starting to use Pans :-)
For my card I've used lots of Diarylide and Hansa Yellow on my base card and then sprayed with Daffodil glimmer mists. Once the background was dry I added faux pearls around the edge with cosmic shimmer glue. I sprayed some crinoline fabric with glimmer mist and added a weathered clock die cut that I'd distressed with acrylic paint and distress ink.
I've used stamps from the Bluebird stamps from Artistic Outpost, I saw these stamps on Yvonne's blog a few weeks ago and had to have them, they are GORGEOUS!! I love to hear the birds sing, its one of my favourite things about this time of the year, yep even at 5am lol. Anyway I took a scrap of card and applied Diarylide yellow and Turquoise shade PanPastels. I used an eraser to remove the PanPastel from the flowers and brids and added colour with Coloursoft pencils.
I used Tattered florals and leaves for the flower, die cutting some waxed tissue paper and colouring again with Diarylide Yellow PanPastel. The centre is a little sparkly copper brad. To finish off i've added a big yellow satin bow and a couple of blingy pins from Crafty Boots.
