Ooohhhh what Fun!!

That wicked woman at out local craft shop showed me how to use Pan Pastels the other day - Big Mistake!!!! For my bank balance at least! But I have had so much fun playing and I just love the effects, from this

to this

Amazing effects and such different techniques.

I was thrilled when I managed to make this for the Try it on Tuesday challenge this week as we had to make samples using items which our sponsors keep in stock so I used the Umbrella Man  die (cut and used as a stencil and the Artemio London Bridge stamp

and of course our regular sponsor of a £15 voucher is 

Hope you can join us at TioT - all you have to do to qualify is to check out the shop by clicking on the banner above and using any of the huge range of products they stock!

Cant stop though - more pastels to play with!

Wow loving what you've done here - been itching to have a play with Pan Pastels but perhaps I shouldn't !!!

I saw your umbrella man on the TIOT blog and thought then how wonderful it was so it's lovely to see it again. I hadn't realised you'd used pastels, Michelle, they give a beautiful effect. Have fun playing.

I know what you mean about the Pan Pastels Michelle. I've just acquired a few colours and had a little play. I need more of the gorgeous colours and lots more time to play with them but I'm already in love, lol!

Your cards are fabulous and they show how easy it is to get a beautiful graduation of colour as well as blending perfectly.
