Oh I do Like to Be Beside The Seaside.....

I don't often post twice in one day, but I have recently found the Pan Pastel Challenge and as I've been playing with my PPs recently, I thought I'd enter this card for their 'Anything Goes' theme this week..

Previously I've played around with masks and mostly making backgrounds using PPs, this is something of an experiment, using finer tipped tools to do more precise colouring.  I think it's worked OK, what do you think ?

I stamped the Michael Powell image and coloured using the very tip of a Sofft Tool and the smaller tools which look like eyeshadow applicators.  I think the very 'loose' style of colouring suits this image and PP's are great for this. 

Now I plan to try the technique with the other Michael Powell stamps I have, so there may well be more Pan Pastel projects to share with you at a later date.

Tomorrow I'll be sharing my Design Team card for the I Love Promarkers Challenge with you, but for now I'm signing off - ta tah  !

I LOVE that MP design and you are so right about the loose colouring of the PP's with those fine tipped SOFFT applicators - just perfick!

Beautiful card card, that style of colouring works perfectly with that stamp and the finished result is fab-u-lous! Thanks for joining us at PanPastel UK this week

This is gorgeous Wynneth. I love the seaside scene. It reminds me of sitting on the beach at Bridlington! They have a row of coloured huts there and you can see the lighthouse in the distance!
