Okay, back to crafting business ... the DT over at Pan Pastel Challenges have been playing around with their pan pastels a little differently this challenge as we have used them to colour our images. I used a cute Mo Manning image (Winter Fairy Talva) to colour up as this is my first real attempt using pan pastels as colouring medium. If I am 100% honest, I had to colour the image first with my Promarkers to get an idea of colours and then again with my Prisma pencils .... so all in all, I have 2 other images to use on future cards (lol).
I wanted to keep my card relatively CAS (unheard of for me I know) and created the centre band by tearing two strips of paper and layering them directly on to my card blank.
Using Light Silver and pearlescent Blue pan pastels, I created a subtle coloured band. I used the colourless blender to blend them both together seamlessly. Next, using a selection of snowflakes stamps (makes unknown), I randomly stamped using silver and blue inks. The sentiment is from StampIn up.
I then added glitter highlights with my Graph It shaker pen in Silver and although it does not show clearly on the photo, it adds a subtle shimmer to the image. I also used the white Graph It shaker pen to add a few highlights.
Now to use the other coloured images before I forget or Christmas has been and gone!
