Use a stamped image at PanPastel UK

Good morning, oooh I do love Sunday mornings, a nice walk with the dogs a scrummy roast in the oven  and of course a new challenge at PanPastel UK and this week our theme is to use a stamped image.  As always our lucky winner with get their sticky paws on a fabby PanPastel Starter set thanks to our lovely sponsor Berni from Your Creativity Store.

For my card, I took inspiration from a project in Craft Stamper, I love the clean and simple layout so here's my version. I've used stamps from Crafty Individuals and began by masking the shaped card blank to create the sea in the circle aperture. I used PanPastels to create the sea and before I removed the mask I stamped the text. Once I'd removed the mask, I stamped the gorgeous vintage lady and coloured her with Graph'It markers and added some glamour dust for a little sparkle to the waves around her feet.

Here's another pic, this one shows the colours a bit better:

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:

Emergency Crafts: Nautical with some blue
Milk Coffee Challenge: anything but a square
Totally Gorjuss: anythng goes with sparkle

Well its certainly not the weather for paddling here in the UK but at least the weather is improving a little now, well its not snowing for a pleasant change
Thanks for visiting today
