Pan Pastels are combined with stencils

Pan Pastels are on tap for today’s card and don’t forget to scroll down for the video tutorial.

Hello all!  I hope you week has been going well, and you’re not having the weather we’ve had in Colorado the last couple of days.  Fingers crossed the kids make it back to school tomorrow for the first day since last Friday.  The good news it is supposed to warm up this weekend and the sun should return to melt some of the mounds of snow.

And onward to the reason for today’s post which is of course a card!  I love me some pan pastels though I definitely don’t play with them as much as I ought to or would like to.

I combined the pan pastels with a stencils to create some fun gorgeous colors.  The pan pastels are so easy to use with stencils and mix beautifully together to create such unique colors and especially transitional colors.

I stamped the sentiment using the MISTI.  This tool is definitely a must have tool.  I know all manufacturer’s want you to believe that all of the tools are a must have, but this sucker really is all it’s cracked up to be.  And it’s really well constructed.  I haven’t had one problem with it since I’ve owned it (over a year now), and I’m rough on my stuff:)

And here is a short video showing how to use the pan pastels and a stencil and a little showing of the MISTI
