PanPastel Challenge Blog – Challenge 23 – Summer Time


Morning everyone, I hope that you are all well and enjoying your Sunday. It’s time for a new challenge to start over at the PanPastel Challenge Blog and this week our theme is Summer Time. The winner will receive a fab PanPastel starter kit (colours may vary) from our regular sponsor Your Creativity Store.

So here is my attempt at a summery card

To make this card I have used an 8″x8″ shaped card blank, I cut 3 pieces of white embroidered cotton 1 medium, 1 small, 1 large, on the small one I stamped a Tim Holtz sentiment. For the larger pieces I added colour to them using PanPastels I wanted to have some colour variation on the fabric so I added colour to the fabric by scrunching it up and rubbing the fabric in to two different shades of PanPastels  then unscrunching it, rescrunching it and repeating the process on a different area of the fabric. I used Hansa Yellow and Yellow Ochre for the larger piece and Chromium Oxide Green  and  Hansa Yellow for the smaller piece, when I was happy with the coverage I sprayed them with cheap hairspray to fix them. I have then used a piece of yellow sari silk ribbon, some sunflowers from my flower stash and some die cuts cut out using a Memory box die to decorate my  card.

Thank you for reading this post, as always I love to read your comments and I hope you will pop over to the PanPastel challenge blog to join in with us.

About craftymonster81

I have always enjoyed arts and crafts of many different kinds and have recently found that card making / paper craft is a real passion for me. I draw / paint alot of my own designs for my cards but also use products from many of the well loved crafty names out there too. I am currently looking for work as an illustrator / craft designer and have now set up a page on this blog called My Artwork Gallery to show some of my work. I love to see your comments on either my artwork or my cards so please feel free to leave any comments you may have and if anyone is interested in any of my artwork please feel free to contact me. Thanks for looking at my blog. Lindsay xx
