PanPastel Christmas Inspiration

LGood morning all, not long to go now until the big day.

Congratulations to the winner and Top 3 of the Colouring Challenge.

My inspiration for today features a technique I haven't used for a while which is crumpled cling film dipped into Versamark and then dabbed over the paper to make the background.  Dab your chosen colour of PanPastel over the Versamark before blending into the page.  You can see a close up in the photo's below.

I then added Frantage and three layers of a die cut snowflake.

Have a great xmas break everyone and thank you all so much for all your support during 2014.

Sweet Lilac Flowers - Anything Goes

Hi folks!

Thanks for popping during this very busy xmas period.
It's time for a new Challenge over on the Sweet Lilac Blog and the theme is Anything Goes.
I'm still making Xmas cards so my project is guess what?  Yep another Xmas Card.

It just proves that these pretty and versatile flowers can be used for any occasion.

Congratulations to the winner of our last Challenge - you'll adore your prize.

Why not take some time out for yourself over the festive period and make a project for our Challenge, the prize for the winner is very well worth having!!

Merry Xmas all xxx

PanPastel Christmas

Hi there!

Well today over on the PanPastel Challenge Blog the theme is Christmas so no excuse for not entering as you must have loads of projects with a Christmas theme!

I've decided to go for a different colour way by using a black tag.  I embossed the snowman using a mask and passed it through my Grand Calibur.  I then lightly went over the surface of the tag with the White Pearlesescent (fine) which gives a lovely sparkle but unfortunately it doesn't show up too well in the photo.

The Pointsettia was made from the Tattered Pointsettia die, coloured with Pearlescent Blue PanPastel and sprayed with spray and sparkle.

The sentiment was stamped with Brilliance white ink onto black card, cut out and added to the tag.

Add tinsel and an MDF reindeer and we're good to go.

PanPastel Colouring Inspiration

Congratulations to our winner and Top 3 announced today - great entries again, as always.

My Inspiration today is using PanPastels as paint.  For this I scrape a little PanPastel into the relevant lid and mix in a little water until it resembles the consistency of water colours.

I then added Glamour dust with a Quickie glue pen to make a perfect little topper for a special xmas card.

Thank you so much for visiting me today, I appreciate all your comments.
