Pan Pastel Backgrounds


More pan pastels with stencils and versa mark ink. Again this background was created just using the one colour.


Then I added some stamping in black archival. The main image, grungy silhouette is by Dina Wakley.


I used a mix of magenta, blue and purple for this background, but I put way too much purple on and it was really dark, so out came my new toy, the translucent blender and wow I was impressed, it really toned down the colour as you can see. Hearts are from a Dina Wakley set and grunge circles are by Hero Arts. The dots are sequin waste.


Then I simply added lonely girl, another stamp by Dina Wakley, in black versa fine ink.


I used the bamboo stencil on this background along with red, orange and yellow pan pastels.


I stamped the images in black versa fine, the main image is from a LP PA plate and the top two are my new wooden stamps picked up for half price at Port Sunny at the weekend.
