Sweet Poppy Stencil, Lavinia Stamps and PanPastels..

Morning bloggers.. bit wet here today, but I'm looking forward to a super Saturday as I'm expecting a visit from my best crafty pal Karen.  
Karen introduced me to paper crafting so I owe her a great deal, it's because of her that I have NO MONEY!

Let me tell you about this Tag. It's a sample that I've made for my PanPastel Workshop Class next Saturday.

PanPastel background, blending Bright Yellow Green and Dark Yellow Green together then using a Nestabilities Circle die cut, both the negative and positive shapes, create a sun with Diarylide Yellow and Permanent Red PanPastels.

The Sweet Poppy Fairy Castle  was put into position and stencilled with Versamark ink and a small soft sponge  
Leaving the Stencil in place I added colour and shading from Magenta and Violet PanPastels. 
Wash and dry the stencil as soon as it's removed then stamp your tag with various colours of Versafine inks and Lavinia Stamps... job done! 
More designs to make today .. good fun.
I hope you have a great weekend.
Thanks for popping by my blog today
