Something a little different

Florals Card - Pan Pastels 
Did you wake up to rain like we did this morning.  And here's me thinking it was going to be hot and sunny again.  I was up early this morn, and while the house was quite thought I'd get out my Pan Pastels and have a crafty hour.  It's been a while since I've used them but wanted to make and entry for this months Pan Pastel Blog Challenge - Florals.  
My rose is loosely based on my Granddads favourite, 'Glenfiddich' and then I used white to shade pinks purples and greens for the flowers and foliage in the background to give them a soft look.  Working on white flowers took me back to my cake decorating days and the hours of dusting white flowers that went into the wedding cakes I used to make. Heres a few close up pics of my finished card.





Well I'm off back to chat to the camera now, so have a lovely day, thanks for calling by and catch up again soon :-) C

  11. Clare you have such talent and imagination your card looks so alive so realistic, when you do anything it seems to fall into place, you want to reach out and touch, simply beautiful.
