Magical and Mystical


Ermmmm.....not entirely sure I've totally hit the spot with this theme.  For those of you that know me, you'll know I don't have any fairies, castles and mystical types of stamps in my collection, so I've done the best I could with what I've got!!! 

This week the PanPastels UK team are asking for 'magical and mystical'.

I stamped the CI-137 image, a flourish and the word dream in black stazon.  I coloured the background with a combination of violet tint (470.8) and turquoise tint (580.8) pan pastels.  I coloured the main image with magenta (430.5) and the flowers with violet shade (470.3) and phthalo blue (560.5) pan pastels.  The yellow flowers and the lilac swirl down the left I coloured with Artbars.  I used the pastel Artbars to outline some of the flourishes and over write the word, dream.  To try and make it more magical, I added turquoise and purple Stickles to the flower inners, the dots around the dream and the wings.  I added wool fibres to finish.



Then I decided to see what I could do using Titus from Stampotique.    So I made this ATC incorporating the mushroom stamp from Lavinia and the swirl stamp also from Stampotique.  I used magenta (430.5) and bright yellow green shade (680.3) pan pastels on the background and purple and lime green Stickles for the sparkle of magic - lol!!!!

Love both of these Sam. Who says magical/mystical has to be fairies and wizards? They are both mystical in their own way and so totally different. Hugs, Buttons x

I think you did a great job with the Dreamtag. Really magical colours and the image looks very mystical to me.
The Titus ATC is less mystical, but very funny and it looks like he has hung a lot of little men in the plants LOL. I can tell that the ATC is more your style.:-)
Hugs,
Marianne
PS Thanks for commenting on Mylo's blog!
