PanPastels - One for the boys

I have a postcard for you today as my DT piece for the PanPastel UK challenge - One for the Boys. I wanted to stay away from the cars and transport theme so I opted for photography instead. It certainly isn't girly so I am sure will fit this theme ok.

The background was made with PPs and masks to give that layered, texture look, I stamped straight onto the card as well as stamped images and cut out. I also coloured the reverse side by covering it lightly in the colours I had used on the front to give it an aged, vintage look. This is a Penny Black stamp.

Don't forget we have an amazing sponsor who provides a sample pack of two PanPastels for you to try out with, do go over to Your Creativity Store to see their amazing prices on these fabulous pans of colour.

I hope we will see you over at the challenge blog too to show us what you have been making with a masculine feel to it. Remember you don't have to use PPs in your piece, but of course we love it when you do.
