Inky orange

The lovely Gillian chose this week's Sunday Stamper theme for Hels and to be honest I think it was so they could show us their incredible work from attending a Dina Wakley class at LB Crafts on Friday and make us jealous all over again! I was lucky enough to be able to join them, and a few other friends for dinner afterwards and saw their work first hand - it was incredible so I really encourage you to see their blogs where they show you just what they achieved in a day! 
Anyway the theme this week is 'blue and orange' and I thought I'd see how Pan Pastels work on some of Wendy's Art Parts and also I wanted to make a little hanging for my craft space - more on that later in the week! So I covered an ATC with light blue, stamped the dotty 
background stamp with clear ink and then lightly covered it with a dark shade of blue. I then blended orange round the edges which looks really cool in real life - honest! The flower is stamped with Ripe Persimmon Distress Ink on grungepaper and then with orange pastel over the 
top. There is a sneaky stalk in green but I doubt anyone will notice! The ink bottle is grungepaper again, stamped in Faded Jeans Distress Ink with blue pastel over that. A chain to hang it with finishes it off! Gabrielle x

PS: It might be useful if I named the Pan Pastel colours I used!:
580.3 Turquoise Shade; 560.8 Phthalo Blue Tint; 280.5 Orange and 680.5 Bright Yellow Green

Lovely! I've been thinking of trying Pan Pastels but haven't made it to an art store to get any yet. I think you're right but I also think they should have made the colour challenge green - because I'm green with envy that they got to see Dina. LOL
Have a wonder day Gabrielle!
