DT Project #1 by Minxy : Featuring

Pan Pastels
Sam Poole Vintage Photography Stamps
Howdy snazzy folks, my time is finally here to share the first of my projects,
To say I was excited when I heard we were getting pan pastels to play with was an understatement,  Yes I know I already had a few but one can never have too many in my opinion, I LOVE THEM
If you've not tried them all I can say is YOU NEED THEM!! lol
So onto my card...
I started with a piece of plain white card, and I randomly stamped the film strip in versamark ink, I then used a sofft tool to apply black pan pastel to the inked areas, I found that some of the black also transferred to the background but I wanted that effect so it was fine, I also added some burnt sienna to the background without fear that the film strips would change colour as the ink had already grabbed the black.
Next I stamped the photographer and the frame with sentiment onto encaustic art card with versamark ink,
 I used more burnt sienna pan pastel on the guy and after cutting him out edged him with some vintage photo distress ink. I used raw umber on the frame and words. Because I used encaustic card which has a super smooth finish the pan pastel only stuck to the ink and not the background.
Then it was just a case of cutting out and arranging it all together with some added touches in the form of some idea-ology film strip and a couple of friendly plastic cameras that I made myself using a hand made mould.
I hope you have enjoyed my first offering, and try the whole versamark stamping technique, it's a lot of fun.
I'll be back later in the week with my second project and a new UTube vid to match.
See you then
Stay Inky
