CAS with pan pastels

Oh my it's Sunday and that means back to work for me tomorrow after 2 weeks off. I am already dreading the thought of the alarm going off. However am looking forward to hearing about the children's Christmas adventures.

As I said yesterday I am not setting myself any New Year's resolutions but instead goals. Now one of my goals this year is to be braver around CAS projects. I just don't know when to stop and before I know it, my CAS idea becomes a multi-layered over embellished project ... lol.

So with an idea in my head, I made sure that the only thing on the table were my pan pastels stamps, ink pads, embossing powder and of course, card stock. I am convinced that if my eye cannot spot anything else, I cannot use it on my project. Have to say it was hard as once I had finished, my hands were desperately itching to stick something else on .....

As you can see, I had three attempts at my card using the same stamps sets but changing the colours. All my backgrounds were created the same way .... randomly daubing a Versamark pad on the card front and then layering different pan pastel colours down. I blended the colours with the new colourless blender.

Colours: Orange, Pearlescent orange and Yellow Ochre

The next colour way ...

 Colours: Turquoise, Pearlescent Blue and Pearlescent Violet

... and the final colour way ...

 Colours: Magenta, Pearlescent Red and Orange

The sentiments are rub ons from Royal and Langnickel (called "Motivate Sentiments") which I have had for eons. Not sure why I haven't used them before especially as so far, I adore these sentiments. Watch this space as I definitely use up the rest ...

Domestic goddess duties today as Christmas is packed away and I do need to try and organise myself ready for work tomorrow.
