Sun Sea and Sand at PanPastel UK

Hi there, back again with my post for the new challenge over at PanPastel UK where the theme is 'Sun Sea and Sand'. A nice reminder of what we should be seeing this time of year not all this rain and cloud lol.

You may have noticed that i've got a bit of an obsession with creating clouds and seascapes with my panpastels so I hope you're not fed up of seeing them yet. This card was inspired by artwork on the Wetcanvas website here. I don't have any proper canvas paper but I was inspired to try using my Pans on kraft card to give a nice sandy effect for the beach. I've used white, paynes grey, blues and turquoise panpastel for this project and added some detail with Derwent Pastel Pencils.

I wanted the sea to be the focus of this card so I've kept it very clean and simple and just added a stamped verse from Chocolate Baroque's 'Seagull Collage' stamp sheet.

I'm entering this card in the the challenge from Art with no Boundaries where the theme is Anything goes with Summer skies. It also fits the challenge from Deep Ocean where the theme is 'Sea of Love' and this weeks gorgeous colour palette from The Play Date Cafe

Don't forget you can win a fab PanPastel starter set from our regular sponsor Berni at Your Creativity Store
