Good morning everybody.
Thank you for your very kind comments about my Pan Pastel Q & A post earlier this week and pleased some of you found it useful. I was a tad thrilled to receive a mail from Pan Pastels themselves asking if they could use it on one of their mixed media artist sites, so I figure it must be OK. I think I've answered all your e.mails about them, but if I have forgotten anybody just give me a dig in the ribs to remind me.
I fully intended sharing a few more cards that I made yesterday using Pans, but the weather has been so atrocious it's been impossible to get decent photos as even in the middle of the day it's been like midnight. So instead here are a couple of samples I made for Stamp Addicts next programme on Create and Craft TV a week today, that's 29 November at 4pm and 7pm.
I've actually had the stamps a few weeks as Sarah gave them to me when I did my last demo there and it's been so hard keeping the poppies in particular under wraps, you know how much I love my poppies and I know it's a passion shared with lots of my crafty friends, so I'm taking no blame if you 'have' to buy them.
The card at the top of my post has been simply stamped twice with black archival ink and coloured with Pan Pastels, Bo Bunny DP. seed beads in the centre of the poppies and some ribbon and bow to embellish.
The second card is a bit of inky indulgence, background stamping, colouring with watercolours and rather a lot of Frantage around the edges, I think this one is Aged Spice. I also threw in a Tim Holt's clock die cut from coredinations and sanded down.
Have a good Thursday and many thanks for dropping in to see what I'm up.
