Up, Up, Up and Away!

A new challenge at Fashionable Stamping Challenges and Dot wants you to " Make a Card." As always stamping is a must and there will be a prize and Top 3 selection, so get inky  and make some cards! You will want to stop by FSC and check out the gorgeous creations of the DT!
Well I have these Pan Pastels that I have only used once and thought I would pull them out for my background! I wanted a simple sky and ocean scene, so lightly applied some blue in a circular motion for the sky, leaving some lighter areas for clouds and then swiped it across the ocean floor! Once I liked the background, I did give a quick spray of sealer.
All images are IndigoBlu, gifted to me by Brenda and were inked in Archival Black. For the gears, I applied a little Treasure Gold to tone down the silver.

Hope you are enjoying the weekend and thank you so much for visiting me today!

Hi Terry. I have PP's too that don't get used often enough (sad really because they cost me a fortune). The softness of the colours have created a beautiful backdrop. Great stamps too!!! Lucky you!

Your tag looks great, I always wanted to try Pan Pastels but never bought any.. I haven't pulled out my paper to create in ages. I sure do miss it.

That sky looks absolutely beautiful - gorgeous work with the PPs. My only PPs were some samples I won, and - forgive me for being ungrateful - the colours I got were red and yellow... so far they're still unused!!

Great card, Terry!

Fantastic Terry. Wish we could have a sky like that to float away in rather than the grey, miserable one with the gales in it. Jenny x
