Playing with Pan Pastels

Good morning. Whoop whoop I finally had some time to play with just a few of my new purchases from the  GNPE at Harrogate and I was itching to try out the PanPastels so I had a go with them first.
Don't be too harsh with me as this was my first attempt with them :o)
I wanted to create an atmospheric sky - something like the Northern Lights in Lilac!!
The gorgeous stamps are Indigo Blu 
I added a touch of Glossy Accents here and there and then sprinkled with Glamour Dust.
The background behind the image panel was made using Frantage Embossing Glitter Enamel.
This also used - Memory Box Frostyville Border die

I'm looking forward to having another play soon :o)
