I chose the colour and came up with this
This is my first outing with Pan Pastels. Everyone has been raving about them and I usually rush right in and buy everything in sight and then find that quite frankly I am too ham fisted to use the item and it ends up on ebay, a bargain for someone and an expensive mistake for me.This time, however, I decided to err on the side of caution. I knew we had this challenge coming up so I bought just one pastel in the pure colour range, turquoise. I loved how easily it went onto the card, as I coloured the background card with the pastel before embossing it with a Crafters Companion 8” embossing folder. After I had embossed it I went over the raised areas with the same colour (well I only had the one, lol) and it darkened up the areas that were raised.
Next I stamped with versamark onto a separate piece of car IndigoBlu’s Baroque Christmas tree and dusted over with the pastel again. It sticks to the versamark a treat and I was really pleased with the result. A set of these have now made their way onto my birthday present list!!! I loved the way it glided onto the card, both smoothly and over embossed areas and again how well it covered the versamark ink without leaving too much residue on the un-inked areas of the card. A much better result, for me that is, than using Inks as I always seem to be so heavy handed with the cut and dry foam or the blending tool, and too light with ink dusters.
The gems were from my stash as are the little diecut gift and the holographic silver card I used for matting. Sentiment was free with a Magazine stamp set.
