Using my pan pastels to create a RAK giveaway ...

It's Sunday already and a new "anything goes" challenge starts at Love to Create challenges and it is a challenge with an added bonus ...

As a new twist on Love to Create Challenges, the DT thought it would be nice to share our pan pastels love with you all, so for this challenge each DT member is giving away their project; a postcard. The DT are taking this opportunity to say thank you for following both the challenges and us, so have created this RAK (random act of kindness) giveaway. One lucky commentator will receive my postcard at the end of this challenge (Sunday 28th June) so that gives you 2 weeks to enter both the challenge and also comment on my blog. The winner of my postcard will be both announced on the Love to Create challenge blog and here on my own blog.

I have made my postcard by first stamping the "tree of life" and then masking it off (which believe me, took a while) and then added my cute row of houses. Both stamp sets are from the Studio 12 range from Polka Doodles. I have painted all the images by using my pan pastels with a small amount of water. When dried, I went over the images again but this time with a dry paint brush. This adds shading and depth.


I am also going to sneak in a few pieces of stampbord for the random winner of my postcard, so if you have never played with this wonderful product before, you can have a "try it out" session.


Remember to be in with a chance to win my postcard, leave me a comment on this post and I will pick a random winner on Saturday 27th June with the winner being announced the following day. Don't forget to visit the other DT because if you do not win my postcard, you might win one of their fabulous postcards instead. All DT links can be found on the  Love to Create challenge blog.

Have a wonderful Sunday everyone. Hubby and I are off out to collect our 25th Wedding Anniversary presents ...,
