Distress V Pan Pastels


I decided to have a play with the colours purple, yellow and green.  I used seedless preserve, mowed lawn and mustard seed distress inks for this background.  I also went top heavy with both the black and white Posca pens!!


Distress inks again using the lighter shades of the same colours for the background, squeezed lemonade, evergreen bough and shaded lilac.


Then the lighter shades of the pan pastels, hansa yellow (220.5), permanent green (640.5) and violet tint (470.8).


And lastly, the darker shades of pan pastels, violet shade (470.3), yellow ochre (270.5) and bright yellow green extra dark (680.1).

As I was just playing they are roughly A6 pieces of card as I cut an A4 into 4.

Over at Anything But a Card their challenge is either a project from 2012, and to be honest, I looked back and couldn't choose just one!!  Or anything goes (except a card - obviously!!), so I'm putting these in.

Apologies for the quality of the photos, but as seems to be the norm, it's raining, dull and gloomy!!!
