The fabulous Maria McGuire has done it again with a quick and simple card to welcome Spring! I am headed down to Scrapbook Store & More in Port St. Lucie Florida this weekend and wanted to share her fun ideas. She used quite a few PanPastels but this can easily be accomplished with just a few. This is a great beginner project if you are new to PanPastels and don’t know where to start or a seasoned pro!
and Maria is awesome she includes amazing photo and instructional step-by-step!
Take it away Maria!!
I cut a 5” x 7” piece of Bazzill Smoothie cardstock and stamped two of Donna’s new Wood Mounted Stamps from Unity on it.
Using PanPastels, I first colored in the background with a variety of blues--colors are listed in supply list.
Also using PanPastels, the greens were added to the stems. Not pictured—the flowers were also colored with PanPastels. All colors are listed below. When finished I sprayed the page with Krylon Matte Finish to seal the PanPastels.
I edged Donna’s new Small Canvas Banners with PanPastel and using a Faber-Castell Pitt Pen. I then used some rub-on’s in orange for the word GROW. I didn’t care about the color of the rub-ons because I was basically using them to get the shape so I could outline them with the Pitt Pen. To get the center of the sun I punched a 2” circle with white cardstock and colored with PanPastel and stamped the sentiment on it.
