PanPastel ATC

This week for the Challenge over on the Blog I've made a little floral ATC.  The inspiration came from this months Craft Stamper Magazine.  I've been considering cancelling my subscriptions to the stamping magazines I take as they were becoming a bit "Samey" - well have you seen this months Craft Stamper?  Wow has it had a make over - I loved it!!!!!

So anyway back to my ATC - I took my ATC and covered it in Gesso and when dry added Violet and Permanent Red Panpastel for the background.  I then added all sorts of texture, more Gesso and more PanPastels.  Next came the florals, flourishes and butterfly.  Again more gesso and more PanPastels - you just wouldn't believe the amount of layers there is on this project!  It got a little dark at one point so I just knocked it all back a bit with the White Gesso until I got the desired affect.

Next came the pearls and sparkles and a bit of silver gilding wax, hope you like it.

I'm off to have another look at my magazine.
