PanPastels and Lavinia Stamps..... First PanPastel Challenge!

Hello everyone
This card is the first one I've made as part of the PanPastel Design Team  for their Challenge Blog.

Please take a look because you can enter the new challenge that starts TODAY called 'Anything Goes!'

You don't need to use PanPastels to enter.... any medium you like!

I only have a few PanPastel colours at the moment but I'm investing in a lot more from Your Creativity Store as I just love using these products.

I'm learning all I can about them ( lots of videos on you-tube) such smooth, rich colour coverage. Or, as in the case of this card, loads of white added to give a more subtle effect.

So versatile

I'm well impressed!

Now.... you all know how much I use my brayer and Adirondack inks, well, I can do super quick backgrounds with the PanPastels (easier too!) then stamp my favourite stamps using the Adirondack inks and Versafine inks as they work in conjunction with lots of different mediums!

I started this card by blending the colours I have on some water colour paper.

Then I stamped the Wild Poppy Stamp from Lavinia Stamps, using Adirondack Pitch Black Ink.

My trusty Hougie Board gave me the scored lines I needed on the card base .... a few bits n bobs plus a sentiment stamp from Clarity Stamps .......      Job done!

Thanks for stopping by today ... see you again soon. I'm off to make another card for the next challenge!
