lemon and lime pan pastels

 Hello my crafty fiends. After seeing so many lovely posts with pans from the talented Yvonne Froehlich, I decided it was time to try them out.


As I had bought some new Lavinia stamps at NEC in March, I thought it would be a good idea if I linked the two challenges.


I stamped with versamark on a white piece of card. I then sponged hansa yellow and chrome oxide green pans all over the card and the image appeared.


Then I stamped fly with black archival ink and coloured with spectrum noir pencils. I stamped all around the edges with the crackle border and fern green archival ink.
I then added glossy accents to fly and once dry I matted and layered as shown.


So that was my first effort with pan pastels. I know it is a clean and simple card but it is a new medium for me and I need to learn what it can do, Theresa xx

I would like to enter the card in the following challenges:

Lavinia stamps challenge - lemon and lime
Pan pastel challenge - anything goes
Sister act card challenge - anything goes
