Something Girly at PanPastel UK

Another week has passed and we have a new theme at PanPastel UK, we want to see something girly so get out those girly bits and pieces and show us what you create.


I chose a beautiful stamp from Crafty Individuals and used PanPastels for the background and Graph'It markers to shade her in.
Pans used - Magenta Shade, Burnt Sienna Tint, Titanium White
Graph'It Markers - Camellia, Light Caramel, Mocha, Pink grey, Steel and the blender.

I found a fabulous way to create a shimmery PP background by scraping a little of the pans onto my craft mat and mixing it with Biscotto Perfect Pearls mist, then I dipped and dried my tag several times to get the effect I wanted. I sprayed it with colourless fixative before moving on.

I stamped some text around the card using archival inks before stamping the main image, leaving space for her in the middle.



Because the pans had left a residue on the background the markers gave a chalky effect to the dress but still blended brilliantly.


Some lace, ribbon, music paper, die-cut lock, flower, pearls, mini tag & heart finish it off.

Hope you have a wonderful Sunday.
