Thursday again, it'll soon be the weeken at this rate!

Hi there,

A few of things to share with you today and only two will involve pan pastels (my current fave). So, starting with the pan pastels cards - I can't believe the coverage of these babies! If not for the time taken to mount the image panel and cut the ribbon then the second card would have been made in about a minute!!! I LOVE CAS and I LOVE Pan Pastels but ..... bad  news folks, my cheap hairspray (which I've been using as sealant) ran out!!! Guess this means we'll be nipping to a store nearby - to buy a new can. I usually buy a travel size as I don't use it on my hair and a teeny tiny can takes up less room. Of course, the first one below DID take longer to produce but - you KNEW that, didn't you?

Materials used:
  • 12.5 cm square white 250 gsm card and matching envelope
  • 12 cm grey card panel
  • 11.5 cm black card panel
  • 11 cm white card panel
  • Pan pastels: red tint, yellow ochre, magenta, violet, grey
  • Versamark ink pad used to stamp my inkadinkado circles, Penny Black circles and Recollections splats
  • Hero Arts HUES black ink used to stamp my Fancy Pants Designs Sentiment and Inkadinkado MEADOW thistles
Woo Hoo I am loving how this is working for me - the PP's blend so beautifully

Materials used:
  • 12.5 cm square white 250 gsm card and matching envelope
  • Grey card panel

  • Inkadinkado image inked using versamark ink on to white card panel and then grey pan pastel applied using cut and dry and sealed with the last of my cheap hairspray
  • Clearly Wordsworth sentiment inked using Hero Arts HUES in black
  • Black/white ribbon cut in "V" shape and adhered behind panel before adhering image panel to base card

Materials used:

Hope you like both projects and yes, the Sparkle 'n Sprinkle (Becca with tulips) image was acquired at my recent foray to the Scrap Booking and Stamping expo in Kissimmee. 

Happy Thursday, we're out this evening with our neighbours, Len and Koreen - no idea where we'll go but I'm SURE we'll find somewhere!, and before you ask - no, I'm not taking my PP's with me!!
