Pan Pastels use bright colours
I've had some Pan Pastels sitting in my craft stash for several months. I bought them at a craft show last year, used them once, and then didn't use them anymore. I've recently had them out again, as I've been making some samples for IndigoBlu combining the Pan Pastels with Flitterglu and gilding flakes.
The Pan Pastels blend beautifully, the colours are vibrant, and make gorgeous backgrounds. I like to stamp with Perfect Pearls, and swipe some more colour over the top to create some great layers too. This is a tip that I picked up from Linda Brown at Ally Pally last year.
On Sunday, Kay and Alfie from IndigoBlu will be at the Sincerely Yours Show at Thetford in Norfolk. Hopefully, they'll have some of my samples with them. Are any of you going? If so, look out for me, as I'm popping along too for a bit of retail therapy.
Here's a card I've made using Pan Pastels, incorporating some of my favourite stamps. There's a Stamp Camp butterfly, a script stamp from Indigoblu, and a flourish from Tim Holtz. The colours are quite bright, so I'm entering it for this week's Pan Pastels challenge which is to use bright colours.
Having looked at some of the entries so far, I might not have made my card bright enough, lol!
Thanks for stopping by, xx
