PanPastels - Easter Week

Hi All

This is my DT contribution for the new PanPastel UK challenge this week where we want to see your Easter project. SO come on show us what you have been making.


Mine is a vintage Easter card using an image from the TH seasonal paper stash layered up with paper scraps which have had PPs added to either blend the colours in more or as in the case of the green background used with versamark and a stamp to create the crackle background.


More of my cheesecloth with the flowers as well and a small sentiment printed on the computer.

We look forward to seeing your Easter creations; remember you don't need to use PanPastels on your work but of course we love it when you do.

Don't forget My Creativity Store sponsors us with a fabulous prize of a sample set of PPs but they also have extremely competitive prices so don't pay the earth - go take a look at what they do.

For now.

Hello Brenda
I wish I could obtain a crackle effect like your Bg, it is just wonderful, and I am loving the cheesecloth effect as well. This is a lovely soft and beautiful Easter card.

Hi Brenda,

Love this Easter card. I really do like the cheesecloth! Who would have thought of using it on a card -- YOU! Very cool. I might have to get some and use on my mixed media canvases.

Thanks for keeping me in your thoughts. I get Daisy's ashes this week, bless her heart.

Do try the egg casserole - it's yummy!

Hugs,
Kay
