Card made with Pan Pastels

We have all the colours of Pan Pastels in the shop  and they are at the special price of £4.98 with FREE posting.

I have made this card with 2 shades of Pan Pastel. I stamped the main rose then masked it and overstamped another 2 roses. I coloured the background with with the Pan pastels. I used a rubber to remove any Pan Pastel that had gone over the roses leaving them white.Finally i added some stickles to the roses.

So we hope you will try them out.

Challenge 11 - Pan Pastels

 The winner of our Kanban challenge is

Congrats Hazel. Can you email the shop at or ring on 01902 716770 to claim your prize.

We have a new challenge today at HSC.

We want to see you using Pan Pastels on your projects. We have all the colours in the shop as well as the tools and accessories to go with them. Pan Pastels are a great product. You can colour backgrounds very quickly, colour images, colour your ribbon, lace etc. They blend together beautifully and they will last you ages!!!!!! Beware .... you will get addicted to them!

The blog candy on offer is your choice of any two colours of Pan Pastels.

So here is a bit of inspiration for you. I have made cards and used the Pan Pastels on canvases. We have canvases of all different sizes and depth in the shop.

Here I have used an 8 x 8 scrapbook/artists pad available in the shop.
Used on card making.


The above 2 cards were embossed with embossing folders the coloured with Pan Pastels.

So we look forward to seeing your creations
