Playing with Pan Pastels

Back again lol!  Thought I'd show you this one I made today for Crafty Boots challenge.  I was lucky enough to win a voucher for there a couple of weeks back so decided to have a whirl with some Pan Pastels as I wanted to do clouds :D  I can do them with promarkers but they do take some time and a lot of blending so I used pan pastels in ultramarine blue and ultramarine blue tint to create the background on this (In all of 2 minutes!)  You can find them here at Crafty Boots.

I used a cloud mask or two and added a smidgen of the darker blue around the mask then used the tint to gently push the harsh lines out to give a lovely soft effect.

The image is by Sara Burrier called Hope from Crafts & Me and I've altered it a bit by taking out the word on the balloon to make it more any occasion kinda thing.  I've coloured in what I call buttery yellows (Buttercup/daffodil/Pastel yellow/Mustard) and a touch of pinks.  Papers are Taddy Teddy spring collection and flowers are Hobbycraft & Strikes again.
Cute little sentiment is from Stamping all Day.

O wow, incredible job on the clouds (I am getting my Pan Pastels next week and must add these colours to my list). The little fairy with her balloon is so sweet and you did a great job with the colouring.

Thank you for sharing your card with all of us at Crafty Boots Challenges.
