The House That Stamps Built; Project of the week: 4-18-16

Hello stampers!

The Crafty Nurse here with a Project of the Week for The House that Stamps Built.  Today I’m bringing you a super easy technique using Pan Pastel’s, which if you are not familiar are great pans of gorgeous chalky color.

For this project the supplies I used are:

I began by cutting a piece of smooth bristol paper into 4.25 by 4.25 pieces and treated it with an antistatic bag.

I then placed a light application of blue pan pastel chalk over the entire surface of the bristol paper.

I inked up the “Nature’s Quartet” with Versmark…

and stamped it onto the paper coated with the first layer of Pan Pastel’s.

After making sure your Versamark is dry, apply a darker hue over the stamped image.  This provides excellent contrast to your image picking up only in the areas of the stamped image .  Don’t be afraid to use different colors as the Pan Pastel’s mix very well. For example, try a yellow base layer with red over your stamped image. If you have the metallic pan pastel’s, you can start with gold, then layer over with any other color for a metallic hue.

I chose to use a diagonal pattern when applying the darker hues.  I did one corner in darker green and the opposite in darker blue.

To finish off I sprayed a pastel fixative but if you don’t have that you can use hair spray.

That’s  all there is to it!  For my finished card, I added a little bit of washi tape as a frame and embossed my center wood leaf with versmark and Stampendous powder.  I love altering my wooden embellishments.

I hope you enjoyed this super easy tutorial and break out some of those Pan Pastels you’ve been hoarding!

Hope you’ll join us on Wednesday for the Photo Inspiration Challenge.  I know you’ll love it!
