PanPastels and a Inkadinkado stamp.... for Dad's Day!

Morning all .... went to a family birthday / retirement  party yesterday. FABULOUS time but too much Champagne so I am feeling a little 'delicate' as I write this. I need  more coffee!

This card is a TEN MINUTE jobbie!  6" x 6" white linen card. Some masking tape prepared the 'Barbara Gray' way by sticking it on your arm a few times to take off some of the sticky and the hair on your arms as well!

Score a couple of lines across the card in the middle area. I used my Hougie Board for this difficult and precise procedure lol!

Plonk your masking tape down using the lines to keep it straight and swipe away with your PanPastels.
I used three different shades of blue starting off with Turquoise Tint then Turquoise and finally Phthalo Blue. 

After spraying with a cheap hairspray to seal the Pans colour, take off the masking tape and ink up the Inkadinkado stamp ( 97538-LL) in Versafine Onyx Black then stamp away.

Very quick card which is, of course, my DT sample for this weeks magnificent PanPastel Challenge... Boys / Fathers Day Card.

Go on, have a go, you could win a super trial pack of Fabulous PanPastels

The Sentiment is a Rub-on from my stash.

Xxx got some pan pastels myself yesterday, had a little play, but not got the sponges yet, everywhere I looked are sold out of the 4 round ones, I did use some make up sponges which seemed ok, a little secret, shhhhh!
