The Panpastel Challenge Blog

I couldn't sleep tonight therefore I decided to use my time productively. The Panpastel Challenge Blog #44 is entitled "Make an Embellishment.

I decided to enter this tag which has two different embellishments which I have made. The paper beads were made from Panpastel coloured paper to match the tag and the butterfly was made with alcohol inks on acetate combined with crystal glaze, scrunched up tissue paper on top and left to dry. The butterfly was then cut out with a die on my Bigshot. The ribbon was also coloured using Panpastels.

The challenge finishes this weekend and is entered into: make an embellishment

Thanks for looking.

Thank you card

I was looking for a small Thank you card after receiving a lovely gift from a friend. This seemed to fit the bill using a fancy edge card with a die cut butterfly and flower with a smidge of bling. Hopefully it will be well received.

Almost a piece of jewellery

I thought I'd try the crystal lacquer technique with alcohol inks, acetate, tissue paper etc.

Having left it to dry I looked at it each day wondering what the heck I was going to do with it!

I'd bought the pretty petals from Claritystamp and wondered if I could stamp on the acetate and then cut out with craft scissors.

I'm not sure if the photo will do justice to the outcome. It looks almost like a lovely tortoise shell piece of jewellery.
