A Little Bit Scenic Stamp Card.

The stamp is Silhouette Grasses.
Side view of the inside
I stamped the image in Versafine Olympia Green
and added some fine glitter on the tips of the image
Added Vintage Photo distress ink around the edges
and a few gems, The backing papers are from one of my
CD Collections not sure which one i usually print a lot of
papers out and put them aside i think they might be from
a Christmas CD by polka doodles.
I matted and layered with a pearlescent metallic card
added some ribbon and a few papers roses I used the rest
of the paper to decorate the inside of the card.
Christmas Card Using Pan Pastels
and free stamps.

On this card i used some free stamps from
Hot of the Press.
I used versamark on my background with the snowflake
stamp and coloured over with pan pastels i also
done the same with the topper then stamped the
image in black ink,The stamp shape i cut in my circut,
the border embossing folder was also free with the stamps
from the same magazine I added a few gems.
A Quick Baby Card.
This card i made for my daughters friend who has just had
a little girl I used a crafters companion stamp which i have
had for a while , I stamped the image onto crafters companion
water card and just lightly coloured it with TH Distress Markers
I again cut the shape from my circut and matted onto Pearl Card
The left over card i used a dots embossing folder down each side

First Time Playing With Pan Pastels

Hi And Good Afternoon
We have got some lovely weather this week,
 I was watching a craft programme a few weeks ago and
  they were using Pan Pastels, I treated myself to 5 colours
from Oyster Stamps I just got to play with them today
I made a quick card using the Clarity Masai Warrior
stamp there is no sentiment on this card,
As i only got a few colours i just made do with them
until i purchase some more, I used my smallest Circle punch
as a template for the sun,looks a bit to bright to me.

Card Made Using Pan Pastels.

I used White Linen Card stock to give it a bit of texture
I coloured the card and stamped the Clarity Figure,
the grass is a Indigoblu Stamp and the birds are
Inkylicious Stamps
I need to get some more colours I will just practise
with the ones i got first before i invest in anymore.
Thanks for visiting
And all your comments
are greatly appericated.
Have a great day.
