Two Colours at PanPastels

I am off to Birmingham today to go to the Craft, Hobby and Stitch Trade Show. I shall be popping in to see Berni and Kerry on the Premium Art Brands stand, Berni is our PanPastels sponsor. I shall go and see Jean and Malcolm from Crafty Individuals, Jane and her husband on the Crafts Too stand and I will go and find Andy Skinner who has some new masks coming out.

So onto my design team piece for our PanPastel challenge.

Blues and greens are the two main colours I have chosen to use this week, with just a touch of vintage photo distress ink to frame my focal image.

The background was blended with various greens and blues to create a very smooth effect. 

 I used the Tim Holtz Cattails embossing folder with pans blended and painted over the top. 

The main image was stamped and black embossed on white card and then I water-coloured with the green and blue PanPastels, giving a watery wash around it. 

I used the same same dragonfly again on the background, stamping with Pesto Adirondack ink.

I am really pleased with the effects created on this piece and just love the contrast of the pesto on the brighter bluey greens.

Please pop over to the PP challenge blog to see more inspiration from my DT sisters and hopefully you will be inspired to join us this wee. You never know you might be the lucky winner of a PP starter set from 'Your Creativity Store'.

Have a great day, thanks for visiting and all the support you give me.
