Pan Pastel Backgrounds Pt. 2
by Laura Fulcher

Greetings friends.  As you probably have noticed, I have been playing around with my PanPastel chalks a lot with the my diecuts.  I like the soft effects you can get.

For this card, I was inspired by a card by Dave Brethauer where he only glued part of his floral die.  I really liked the 3-D effect you get with having the petals curl away from the card.  Plus, it makes gluing a detailed die SO easy if you only glue part of it!

To make the card, I started with a white notecard and sponged some Violet PanPastel in the center and then added a little  Magenta followed by some Permanent Red Tint (the light pink). When I finished sponging the colors, I decided that I wanted a crisp circle rather than a hazy edge of chalk, so I took an eraser and removed extra chalk to form a circle.  One of the nicest characteristics of PanPastels is they are completely erasable:

To finish the card, I added my peony, my sentiment and a few black glossy dots:

I hope everyone has a great day!
