Daughter just got back from her companies convention in Phoenix. Oh my! She scored some of the fabulous new Pan Pastels that Fun Stampers Journey will offer as of the new catalogue starting July 1st.
I had been wanting pan pastels since seeing how they were used in French Photo Collage scrappbooking. Some ways around it never quite soothed me but I kept plugging away – until now!
The first thing I did was to make a card, quicker that putting together an entire layout. My hands were itching to get into those scrumptious, rich colors. For this card I heat embossed in silver the new celestial background stamp then sponged on the colors to make my background.
Viewing this image doesn’t do justice to the actual look and feel these colors give. So amazing, actually, and versatile. Colors are mixable, can be made as vibrant as you want (soft here), can be lighten, or blended. There is also the silver and gold. Those pans alone are awesome for adding shimmer and shine to ANY project.
