How to Use PanPastels with Clear Pigment Ink

Hey there, Fun friends!  We’re excited to share with you another beautiful Try Day Friday project created LIVE on our Facebook page.  It’s such a fun feature we share each Friday. Today we’re playing with stamps and PanPastels, and we know you’re going to LOVE this beautiful project!

This week, Shannon used our set Good Karma that is in our newest mini catalog, Celebrating Life’s Moments. The card’s beauty comes from the Pan Pastels used to color both the elephant AND the background.

First, taking a Whip Cream Cardstock panel, stamp in a pattern using the two larger flowers from the stamp set with your Clear Pigment Ink Pad. Once you’re finished you can take the larger  Sofft Tool wedge and blend the yellow Pan Pastel over 1/3 of the card.  Next, you’ll do the center 1/3 with orange and the last third with red, blending the colors out so they are smooth in appearance and that they blend where the colors come together.  You can set this background aside and take another Whip Cream Cardstock panel to stamp the elephant on, using the Clear Pigment Ink Pad once again.

With the elephant you will take the same set of Party Pop Pan Pastels and use the Sofft Tool spatula  to blend the blue Pan Pastel onto the elephant.  Once you are finished, you can cut the elephant and set it aside.  The assembling will begin! Be sure to watch the Try Day Friday tutorial to see all the details on this beautiful card.

And then please follow us on the Fun Stampers Journey Facebook page and YouTube channel so you don’t ever miss a Try Day Friday or any of our video tutorials throughout the week!
