PanPastels - Summer Time

At PanPastel UK challenge blog this week we want to see your summertime creations. I have made a  'Summer at Dusk' card using PanPastels and Distress inks.


I layered the PPs to create my landscape background using torn card and a punched circle to give me the defining lines between each section. I then inked my stamp with embossing ink and laid PPs over to give me the depth to the flowers, next I stamped with different DIs to dive me the flowers in the foreground. 



Lastly I used my TH water brush and DIs to paint in some flowers and leaves finishing off with some tiny stamps to fill in the gaps.

I am quite pleased with the look of this sunset - even though my husband told me it looked as if there was a forest fire in the distance LOL.

If you join us this week you will stand a chance of winning a fabulous et of PanPastels from our great sponsor at Your Creativity Store. Have fun with summer colours/images and link to the challenge so we can come visit you.
