Good morning, I hope you're having a great weekend. I'm a happy bunny this morning as my altered gift box made the top 3 at Allsorts and my little panpastel scene made the top 3 in the Great Outdoors challenge at Craft a Scene. PanPastels are perfect for that kind of project but you can also use them for more detailed work as you can see in this card. Our theme this week at PanPastel UK is 'All about stripes' and I've used ultramarine blue tint and ultramarine blue pans with some masking tape to create a striped background for this card.
The focal image is a Michael Powell stamp, I stamped it on to watercolour card, added colour with panpastels and then used distress markers for more definition. I added a die cut sentiment (which doesn't show up too well in the pic) with a couple of little wooden buttons and some string from my stash. I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
365 cards: stripes
A gem of a challenge: its a boy thing
Anything goes challenge: make your own background
Card Crafters Circle: for the fellas
Crafty Creations: summer scene
Fun with shapes and more: Maritime plus blue and white
As always we've got a fab prize up for grabs, our lucky winner will receive a panpastel starter set from Berni our lovely sponsor at Your Creativity Store. Be warned though once you've tried them you'll be hooked lol.
Do check out my talented teamies blogs as they have come up with some stunning artwork to inspire you again this week. Have a lovely Sunday and thanks for popping by
