This weeks challenge over on Premium Craft brand Pan Pastels blog is "Celebrate" using our metallic pan pastels. Well as I seem to use them all the time, this challenge was a breeze. I am also in love with the hearts mask from Premium Crafts Brand and couldn't resist, and had to use it again on my project. I wanted to make a non-traditional wedding card but I think my card would be suitable for any "love theme".
Stampin Up: Precious Butterflies and Outlined Occasions
Premium Craft Brands: Heart of Flower mask
Distress Inks: Mahogany and Walnut
Stampin Up hearts punch
I have embossed the mask on to white card stock, highlighted the raised areas with a Versamark pen and then coloured with both Rich Gold and Light Gold metallic pan pastels, highlighted with a little magenta. I do adore how it turned out.
The background has been stamped using SU Precious Butterfly stamp set, with distress inks and for an added touch, I have highlighted areas with my Versamark pen and coloured these highlights with gold pan pastel. I have also stamped some extra butterflies with a Versamark pad, colouring them with gold pan pastels. You can just see them in the background.
The sentiment is also from SU (Outlined Occasions) which I have cut out, highlighted with Light Gold and magenta pan pastels. The background the sentiment has been mounted on to, is using the same SU background set as before. Added a border and some bias ribbon as a finishing layer. Finally a few hearts sprinkled here and there. The card is considerably more sparkling in real life but not the best light today to take photos. Must start being a good girl and getting my photo booth thing out as I am sure my photos would be much better.
Well got to dash as have a few bits to get ready for the morning and have to proof read my sons personal statement,
