Shaz in Oz ...I've done it! In fact, I've done it ... Twice!

My crafty friend, Shaz, who has a super duper blog here, Shaz in Oz. Will be very pleased with me today!

Oh yes she will and so will Sheree  check out a super tutorial on her blog!

I am posting, not one, but TWO tags using some Stampscapes Stamps that I have had for yonks and never used !

 About time too ! I've had some sort of block regarding these stamps ... I don't know why they are so gorgeous .

  Not a brayer to be seen for these tags... just my wonderful PanPastels again, along with a few sponges to apply them with.

The suns were created using both the positive and negative circle die-cuts from my Nestabilities Circles.

Pop over and join in the PanPastel Challenge Blog  when you have a moment.

Apply the PanPastels to the tag keeping an eraser close by on your desk, cos its a total joy to be able to remove any 'mistakes' plus add 'lighter' highlights.

The eraser takes all the colour away that you don't' want.

I used the positive nestie circle as a mask, to cover the area where I wanted the sun to be and then completed the main part of my back ground.

Remove the positive mask and swap it for the negative die cut circle .

Lay this over your back ground where your sun is and colour the sun however you wish with your PanPastels.

Remove the mask and if you want to, add the 'Halo' effect by sweeping the eraser around the sun to remove some of the colour..... Rock 'n Roll !  SO EASY !

Stamp the Stampscapes Stamps.

Have another 'tart' around to tidy things up.

Using your eraser again, take a bit more colour off  the side of your sun to 'fake' some mist or clouds.

Oooooo getting arty now lol  !

When you are sure the ink from your image is DRY and you have finished adding more colour with the PanPastels, spray lightly with a hairspray to 'fix' the chalks!

Both sentiment stamps are from Clarity Stamps.
 Is that Okay now Shaz ?

Thanks for popping by today.

See you soon.

BTW I have some new goodies arriving soon ... something NEW designed by Tracy Dutton at Lavinia Stamps!

Watch this Blog lol  

Have a good week.
