Pan Pastel creations with Magenta.....

(Voor de Nederlandse vertaling zie het eerder geplaatste bericht hier:)

Hi there,

At first I want to wish everybody a wonderful, healthy and creative 2014!

I've made two Pan Pastel creations with a lovely flower stamp from Magenta and some cover a cards from Impression Obsession. I've used a structured canvas paper with a rough and less rough side. I am happy that the velvet paper is back in the collection but this canvas paper is also great to work on.
On the background I've used partially cover a card French script. The flower is also embossed with Wow silver pearl. You can see the effect in the close-up pic.
For the two rectangles I've used the rough side of the paper and I've used the other side for the background.

You can see the structure of the paper through the embossing layers.

And the 2nd card with different colours and more cover a card backgrounds, Grunge and Spatter. The flowers are stamped with Hero arts inks with different shades of grey and black. I've used the less rough side for the rectangles and for the background I've used the 'velvet' paper. This is such a great surface to work on........

  1. These are such gorgeous cards as always Miranda. I love the way you have used the Pan Pastels. The shadow stamping is very effective in the paler colours. I always love the use of script. I find myself wondering if you stamped first, then shaded with the Pans or shaded then stamped, or maybe a little of each? Really lovely work. Elaine x

    1. Hi Elaine, I did a bit of each......., thanks for your lovely comment! Hope you are OK and enjoying your creating time! xx Miranda

  2. Hello Miranda
    I will have to study this technique closely to achieve anything like your work!
    Beautiful as always Miranda!
    Love Marg

  3. It's the first one that fascinates me - the way you even lined up the script of the smaller panels against the script of the background; also how the right hand panel has some script but also a large expanse of open space to balance the seed head. Lovely texture there too especially with the embossing & then the extra stamping. I found myself wondering whether you stamped the grey seed heads first with the script & then did the white embossed seed heads or the other way about. I can never seem to get the inks sufficiently dry so I end up with embossing powder sticking to the earlier stamping as well!!

    1. Hi Paula, I know what you mean with sticking emb.powder! I've embossed first and overstamped than and added Pan Pastel. But I am sure when you want to do it the other way around it must be possible with fixating your Pan Pastel layer first. With a pastel fixative or also possible is Liquitex matte medium. Just sponge a little layer on it and let it dry. Than apply the embossing layer.......most of the time I don't have the patience to do that! xMiranda

  4. Prachtige kaarten Miranda, leuk om jou en je moeder vandaag weer even gesproken te hebben

    Liefs Henriëtte
