Tiffany Johnson Creative #100daysartplay Challenge - Day 37

Today is Day 37 of the Tiffany Johnson Creative #100daysartplay Challenge, it's the second day for the prompt of using charcoal / pastels.

Starting with a piece of white card, measuring 11x15cm, I covered the surface using "Magenta 430.5" Pan Pastel.

Then around the edges of the card I applied a darker shade of Pan Pastel, using "Violet 470.5". I then added some more "Magenta" Pan Pastel in the middle to blend in the colours a little more.

Slightly in from the left hand side, but roughly half way up, I blended a circle of "Titanium White 100.5" Pan Pastel.

Next, using Versafine Clair "Nocturne" black Ink, I stamped the Lavinia Stamps "Lupin" the hare.  I stamped the Lavinis "Star Cluster" around the white Pan Pastel area, behind the head of Lupin.  

I used Versafine Clair "Twilight to ink the edges of the card, I also used it with the Lavinia Stamps "Hill Mask" to create the landscape.

Using "Nocturne" again, I stamped the Lavinia Stamps "Vine Branch", a black bird from the Lavinia "Bird Collection" stamp set.  I then multi-stamped the "Small Branch" in the bottom right hand corner.

In the background and around the stamped areas, I used "Violet 470.5" Pan Pastel through the Lavinia Stamps "Feather Leaf Stencil".

I added extra details using gel pens and Posca Pens,
