Impression Obsession- Branches of a tree

Thought it was about time I got my Panpastels out, I've been practising with the new metallic ones too but not ready to show yet!

I wanted to carry on having a go with different sky styles and found these stamps at Oysters which I thought would be lovely against a coloured early morning sky. The pastels are so suited to this style as you can add or rub out until you get the blending how you want - good fun.

As my focus was the sky I kept the foreground very simple  blending just two colours - Chromium Oxide Green Tint and Turquoise Extra Dark. The sky is a mixture of Ultramarine Blue, Ultramarine Blue Tint, Magenta and Diarylide Yellow Tint.

Glamour Dust added to the tree to highlight the morning rays on maybe an early frost! There are a lot more stamps in the set, bare branches, leaves and blossoms which I haven't used.
