Pan Pastel Atc's

The background text paper was coloured with a variety of pan pastels except where I wanted to stamp the face.  Acetate was added and attached via the brad top right and the pen nib was added over the acetate.

The image was stamped first onto a white piece of card, then coloured with various colours of pan pastels working from light in the middle to darker outside edges.  Extra stamping, star brads and the idea-ology word was added.

Background coloured with a light yellow pan pastel, mini cubist stencil used with a further 2 colours. Image added and covered, crackle image stamped in versa mark and heat embossed with platinum wow powder. Arrow with brad and idea-ology words added.

And all 3 side by side.

PanPastelUk have a theme of anything goes this week, so been as I've used pan pastels on all of my backgrounds I'm entering these into the challenge.

Hi I'm Sam, 45, birthday in October - Any piece of art gratefully rec'd - Thanks. OH, Martin, been together 25 years and still no plans to get married!!! We love spending time with our pupster, especially when the weather is dry and we get to take him to the woods. I love any sort of crafting and would say that I am adventurous with new materials. We love going skiing in any winter resort, but mainly the States or Canada, they have better snow!! We lost our first beardie, Max, August 2006 at a ripe old age of 14 and 1/4. Since then Frazzie has come along, he is now 9 years and 0 months old and is still a little Bugger, Bugger!!! Unfortunately in December 2008 we lost Alfie at 14 months old after only having a short time of 7 weeks loving and caring for him. He found a good buddie in Fraz and loved him to bits.
