PanPastels and StencilGirl Stencils

Hi Friends! 
I am so glad to be here and to show you what I did with PanPastels
 in the Stencil Girl Book I made last month.
I have dabbled with PanPastels for awhile...
very envious of my friends who have large quantities of them!

I decided to use the PanPastels the company generously sent me with 
my VersaMark stamp pad and a couple of StencilGirl stencils.
It is super easy to do. 
The creamy Pthalo Green Shade of PanPastel pigmented powder
just grabbed on to the VersaMark ink.....oh so nicely.
I sponged off any extra pigment that didn't belong.
Then I sprayed it with my Krylon Clear Fixative.

that I taped off the middle section so I just had the outside circles open.
I also used was one of my all time favorites...
the Damask Medium Stencil by Michelle Ward.
So Classic. 

When my background was approximately where I liked it I penciled in my girl...
Filled her in...colored...shaded...
(In case you wondered...the checkerboard is deli paper from a restaurant!)
Wrote my phrase in... hmmm... Too dark...
So I made it stand out with brightly colored gel pens.

There. I love it!



I was wondering how well the PanPastels would work in my Daily....
I tried a border with Terri Stegmiller's Layered Salad Stencil.
I blended the Hansa Yellow and Orange PanPastels
then sprayed it with my trusty fixative
 and there was no problem doodling around it or on top of it!
Good to know!

    1. Yes Tommy...It is a stamp pad that gives a watermark look. Not a color...just makes a shade of the color you stamp it on. But the PanPastels stick to it! Versa Mark pads are good for embossing too. You can find them at any big name store... Have fun!

    1. Hi Glenda, Well, the vesamark is kind of thick..and could maybe be described as 'sticky', but I used the sponge a long time...then I got some paint on it and thought what the heck...so I washed it out with warm water..and it is good as new! The sponges are really awesome!
