I've been playing with these Magenta stamps in July... I needed a christmas card for a challenge and this is also my DT piece for Pan Pastel BNL for today... I don't like when people create christmas cards in July, so this is to punish them, LOL.
PanPastel colors used:  : 
Panpastel Bright Yellow Green Tint 680.8
Panpastel Bright Yellow Green 680.5
Panpastel Permanent Green 640.5
Panpastel Red Iron Oxide 380.5
I am entering this in the challenge on
1. Stampotique -  'Christmas in July' 

This ATC sized card is going into my technique box:

Personally I like this one most, don't know whether that's because of the paper, or the embossing powder I've used.

Week 22 of Journal52 - Traveling

Travelling was the prompt for week 22. 
Yes, I know I am behind, working hard to get back in track:)

I started off with some bookpaper from a roadmap. I glued it to the journal page, then covered it randomly with some gesso. The part where the car had to come, I added a little more, to cover the map better. The skyline was added, and all the other stamped images, to create the collage as shown. I added touches of color with watercolor pencils. I sponged with some distress inks... 

"Wherever you go, becomes a part of you!"

Skyline - Katzelkraft
Car - PSX
Postage stamp left - Kaisercraft
other postage - unknown to me.

Time to let go...

White heat embossing on a rather colorful background can be a little dramatic, 
but I like it; suits the nice sunny weather we have at the moment.
The clocks reminds me of 'time', there is a time to hold and a time to let go:  Our daughter got married this week :).... 
 I distressed the edges with sanding paper, then added some gesso and scribbling to accentuate it.
