A new challenge blog called unruly paperarts has launched today and they are asking for sponging spectacular. I am unsure if these cards will qualify, as I did use a sponge but I'm not sure if you have to use ink as it says 'start applying soft inky goodness'. So I'm entering these cards as I've used a sponge to apply the pan pastels. If it's not right, I'm sure someone will let me know.
I had a purple and blue moment with my pan pastels. Both images are stamped in versa mark and coloured with pan pastels. The background is stamped in picket fence distress stain on the top card and the happy birthday in dusty concord.
After I'd used the pan pastels I inked up the same image with picket fence distress stain and stamped over it again but slightly below the original to give it a faded look, this is why the image looks blurred, but it's not really. Looks much better IRL!!! The background paper is from a piece I made ages ago.
