    I have used two of the three stamps in the ‘Group Poppies’ set, and just like the description says – this is a beautiful set that can be used for almost anything. Not sure if it complies with the Challenge though.

    Thanks for another fun challenge this month! I used ink pads to make the background for my card, but want to buy some Pan Pastels to make backgrounds as I have some money to spend on crafty things. :-) I’m not sure what the difference is between the pure colours, tints and shades. Any advice for the best four or five colours to buy first would be very welcome. Thank you.

    • Eileen Godwin

      Hi liz… I do a lot of Pans work and I adore the bright vivid primary colours… I have all the Pans and use them ALL, every shade, dark, extra dark or tint are just so fabulous …I suggest you choose the colours YOU like best… I started with Red, yellow, and blue … just the three primary’s and of course they blend together so you get green , orange and mauve as well! … have fun
