Born to Travel


Anything goes is the theme this week over at PanPastelUK.  I ran the Couture Creations world map embossing folder through the big shot.  I swooshed over the top of it with Perfect Medium and coloured it with various colours of pan pastels, orange extra dark (280.1), burnt sienna shade (740.3) and yellow ochre extra dark (270.1).  I went over the compass with black (800.5) pan pastel.  The background is a piece of corrugated covered in a piece of red from TH's retro grunge paper stack.  The journey is die cut from a piece of black card and laid over a piece of hessian.  The Eiffel Tower is part of a Hero Arts stamp, stamped and coloured with distress inks.

Simon says stamp and show a bit of brown, so been as I've used burnt sienna shade pan pastel and the Eiffel Tower is stamped in brown I am entering this piece into their challenge this week too.
