Guest Designer - PanPastels
I was very pleased and excited when Nikky and the PanPastel Team invited me to Guest Design for their Challenge Blog. The current theme is Flora and Fauna so I decided to try my hand at a Tryptich Tag.
I took an A4 sheet of white card and blended Violet, Magenta, Yellow and Orange PanPastels to make the background. I then cut around a Size 8 Tag, three times!!!
It was tremendous fun using different tree and plant stamps and I used the strip of card which was left over from the A4 sheet to die cut the butterflies in order for everything to tone together. I even used PanPastels to colour the seam binding. I'm not sure it shows on the photograph but I added black Distress Glitter to make it all pop (it twinkles beautifully when the sun catches it). PanPastels work incredibly well with masks, as you'll see on the centre panel I used a Tim Holtz sunray stencil to add a subtle sunrise.
After adding birds and a squirrel all was complete - I do hope you like it and that it inspires you to have a go and enter the Challenge. Click here to have a look at the lovely work from the Design Team.
Thank you so much Nikky and the PanPastel Design Team for letting me join in the fun.
