Sweet Poppy Stencil and Pan Pastels

My card today is on linen effect card and uses PanPastels and a Sweet Poppy Stencil
I actually worked a bit back to front with this card! Stencilled through with Pans and then used a Iridescent paste thought the stencil. Left to dry to see what colour came through the paste. It was a very subtle colouring on drying  so I thought I would build the background around the shading I achieved and left the centre lightness around the houses and worked out to be darker. Buffed up stencilling with a soft cloth.
Put highlights of Liquid pearls to finish
