PanPastels - Sweet Treats

I had great fun making this card. As I don't have any stamps that seemed to fit the bill for this theme, I put together a couple of digi images and printed out.

I used PPs to give me the basic colours on the images, sealed it and then went over in places with Promarkers to give some highlights and finished off with black and white pens and a brown Promarker to edge and give a bit of a vintage feel to it. The background is a paper from gcd studios Cloisonné collection. Again I added PPS through sequin waste and sealed to give extra depth.

 Like the saying LOL? I gave this card to my staff when I left school. They eat so many cakes and biscuits I thought it was quite apt for them.

I hope you can join us at PanPastel UK challenge blog and don't forget you don't have to use PPs to join in. Our fabulous sponsor The Creativity Store is again offering a PanPastel trial pack as the prize. Go take a look at their amazing prices and deals. It's where I buy mine from.

Enjoy your day.

Hi Brenda, picked you up from Eileen's blog, she's been a super crafty friend over the past 12 months, giving encouragement and motivation. You've created some lovely cards I so love the vintage feel especially flowers and butterflies. Pop over to my blog if you get 5 mins, I've had a quick play with the pan pastels but must do more.
