Pan Pastels over White Velvet Card

OK one small thought has led to a new favourite technique.  I've bought some Pan Pastels and have yet to really use them, I also had some beautiful soft white Velvet Cardstock (which I've been hoarding) from The Paper Temptress - I figured I'd play with both and WOW what amazing results!  Thinking of you poppies

What I used:

What I did:

  1. Mask off area to be coloured using Eclipse tape - I tore mine in half and put the torn edges towards the centre to make it more interesting.
  2. Stamp poppies in Versamark ink and emboss.
  3. Colour the poppies using Pan Pastels - I used the tip of the triangle soft tool to apply the colour.
  4. Using flat surface of triangle soft tool tip, colour around the stamped images with Pan Pastel - applying several colours and blending directly on cardstock.
  5. Spray with Workable Fixative to set Pan Pastels.
  6. Apply Glossy Accents over poppy flowers to create gloss effect.
  7. Stamp text and create flowers from flower soft and flower soft stems.  Coat text with thin line of glossy accents.
  8. Layer onto complimentary card stocks and finish with small olive green ribbon.
