Showered in Love

I love the PanPastels.  They are super creamy and fun to play with in a variety of techniques, but one of my all time favorite things about them is just how nicely they blend and fade out on card stock.  It's so easy to get a beautiful ombre look to a panel as you blend them out, and unlike ink blending, you won't have harsh lines if you start too far in, or have a ruined panel if you drop the sponge.  PanPastels erase with a standard pencil eraser, so it's easy to correct any issues or stray marks that do happen.

The metallic PanPastels are probably my favorite, but if I could choose only one color set to have, it would be the Confectionary Days set.  It was the first set I purchased, and is still the one I reach for most.  I love the lighter pastel colors - particularly the Cool Pool, which I used on the background of todays card.

I stamped the Umbrella and banner on Whip Cream card stock, and then die cut them out, as well as cutting a circle, and a pierced rectangle.  I blended the Cool Pool PanPastel on the circle - concentrating the color on one side, and fading it out.  Then I stamped two heart stamps coming down from the darker color.  I attached the circle to the rectangle using craft glue, and trimmed the overhang off, and then sprinkled Sparkle Silk over the top of my card front.

I added the umbrella, again with craft glue, and then attached the banner with foam squares.  The card front was attached to the card base with foam squares as well.
