I've been experimenting again with the pan pastels, but this time with a mixture of three stamps, Lavinia and Clarity stamps, plus an Artemio butterfly stamp that I've had ages but not used for a while, even though it's gorgeous. I love Barbara Gray's swirl stamp, it can be used in so many different ways, and I think the Dandelion is one of my favourite of Tracey's stamps.
I've blended the background with various colours first and then used Archival black ink to stamp the swirl and butterflies on the background, plus the dandelions across the bottom. Some ribbon and a flower from stash, also a round sentiment. Quite a simple card to produce for a work colleagues birthday recently, just takes me a long time to decide on the design, longer than making the card actually... Sometimes my brain switches off after a day at work. Hope you like it, and I'm so glad Eileen promoted the pan pastels on her blog as they are so easy to use and blend with. See you soon. hugs Dee xxx
