E Is For...

ELK. It's new challenge day at Pan Pastels, and they have chosen animals. It's also new letter time at The Craft Barn Dictionary Challenge and this time it's E.
I've created my background with Pans in purples and blues, and stamped the Sheena Douglass A Little Bit Sketchy stamps in Versafine. (This is their first inking so it's nice to give them an outing) I've coloured some bits with green pencil, and it's all been edged with a bit of Treasure Silver.
I'm really enjoying these challenges, and I like the way the PP's let the text show through and don't warp the paper. I just need to go back and do something for V now 'cos I missed the first week.
Thanks very much for looking x

  7. Hi Sue, this is a gorgeous page. I love the misty effect with the panpastels its perfect with those stamps. I've got those and hardly used them but you've inspired me to ink them up and have a play. Thanks for joining us at PanPastel UK this week
