Pan Pastels and Versa Mark Ink

Using the Sweet Florals and Swallowtail stamps from Stampin' Up!

On the first project I used the Sweet Florals stamp. I stamped with Versa Mark on Whisper White cardstock. Then I used the Pan Pastels and the sponges and tools that came with them to dab and smudge colors onto my stamped image. The Versa Mark grabs the pastels. I added some color pencil lines to get a little more detail.


I used the Swallowtail stamp and the Versa Mark and Pan Pastels same way as above. Then I used my black gel pen to identify the Swallowtail's body.


I am sure I will need some kind of fixative or acrylic spray to set the pastels. But I am enjoying this technique so much. It's very relaxing.
