PanPastels - Use a digi

I rarely use a digi, much preferring real rubber, but with the challenge this week at PanPastel UK I had great fun both sourcing and then using a digital image. I found the background frame in my folders (sorry didn't keep the name of where it originally came from) and thought I would love to use this and perhaps I could layer a digital image over it. So next I found the 'Best Friends' image in my files and decided I would try and put the two together and colour with PPs. I made the digi image into a ping file, layered it on top of the frame, resized it and hey presto, just what I wanted.

After I printed it out I painted the image with the PPs (tutorial coming later).

Then cut out the frame and layered it onto some French dictionary paper adding some collage bits with the sentiment....

and also a ribbon.

 As I had used a scalloped edge card I just cut around the edge once the dictionary paper had been glued on.

I really love this sweet card.

I hope you will join us at PanPastel UK this week and be in with a chance to win a set of these versatile pastels from Your Creativity Store.

Have a great day.

FSC - Oriental

I rarely make an oriental themed card and find them quite difficult so I chose the red, gold and black which seems to be the most popular colours and some gold embossing powder.

I stamped the flower and embossed with black EP, coloured with metallic promarkers. Having masked it off I stamped the chinese letters - don't know what they say lol, then sprayed with gold sparkle.

The red mount was stamped with a flower border and ep with gold embossing powder and the roughly added gold ep on the other edges. Some mounting, a chinese embellishment and tassle and a black ribbon finished it off.

Phew not my style at all.

Have a great Sunday.
