Polkadoodles Digi Queen DT Wk 9 - Winston

Good morning everyone!

I just love the Winston CD from Polkadoodles, and I couldn't resist this fabby digi stamp of Winston chillin' out in his boat; I think he's so cool.  To colour this gorgeous image in I thought I would take inspiration from Nikky and use my Pan Pastels - it was a bit of a learning curve but I'm happy with the results.

Here's What I Did
I thought I would create a CAS card so the main focus would be on Winston. I matted and layered plain Cardstock onto my base and added faux stitching around the edges. The digi stamp was printed directly onto some artist quality paper designed for pastels, but these could easily be any cardstock. I used a fine paint brush to apply my Pan Pastels and when everything was completed I used a few pencils to add a little extra shade and dimension.  I punched out the corners of my completed topper and matted it onto some co-coordinating card. To finish off I wrapped some jute around the edge of the card and added some hand drawn fish and a few buttons. 
Here's What I Used

Paper/Cardstock (CS): Cream Card Base, Artist Pastel CS, Basal CS
Pan Pastels: Turquoise, Bright Yellow Green, Phthalo Green, Burnt Sienna Shade, Permanent Red, Permanent Red Tint, Violet Tint, Titanium White, Diarylide Yellow, Black
