Since the new Pan Pastels have come out in metallics and pearlescent colors, I have fallen in love with them all over again. The new Magenta Flowers & Buds stamp is perfect for a fun Pan Pastel application because it has a lot of solid area.
For this card the sentiment "Happiness is the Path" (LOVE this sentiment) was stamped in Olympia Green Versafine and embossed with clear embossing powder. The Flower & Buds stamp was stamped several times in Versamark ink, and using a sponge tool, I applied Pan Pastels to the Versamarked images in light gold, dark gold, and copper colors. Excess pastel was wiped off with a Swiffer cloth. It was hard to capture the beautiful shiny look of these metallic pastels in a photograph, so in the first picture, the flowers look like they have a sepia tone.
A picture taken at an angle gives an idea how they really look in real life.
