PanPastel Tag

Hi there, hope you're having a good weekend, the sun was shining yesterday which was a great bonus.

Today, for the Love2Create Challenge blog I've made a pastel tag using Pans blended for the background together with the Wildflower Stencil from Sheena Douglass.  I also added the square pattern using a background stamp and a Brilliance ink pad.

i then put texture paste through the stencil and once this was dry I coloured it using the PanPastels, I also added pattern directly to the tag using the same stencil.  I hilighted the textured flowers with a few white dots using my white pen.

A bee, a butterfly and a few words completed the tag (as well as a Perfect Pearl butterfly trail) xxxx

Sweet Lilac Flowers

There's a new Challenge starting today over on the Sweet Lilac Flowers Challenge Blog where you have the opportunity to win a fabulous array of flowers.  Why not pop over to have a look at the inspiration on offer.  Congratulations to last months winner.

My piece of inspiration is a card I made using the lovely flowers to which I added lots of sparkly gems to the centres.  For the base of the card I splattered paints on to it before edging with Mustard Seed Distress Ink.  I then took a Fune Liner pen to draw in some funky stems!  A bow and a sentiment finished it all off.

Thanks for popping in xxxx

PanPastels and Banksy inspiration

Morning everyone!!!  Today I've had a little play with my Bee Crafty Hope stamp (Inspired by Banksy).

I used several stencils too and I touched up the balloon and little girl with my white pen.

Please pop over to the to take a look at my Team Mates fabulous pieces of art.

I clicked on the Mono button on my iPad and loved that version too.

I'd like to enter this project into the Craft Stamper Take It Make It Challenge.  The theme is Take a Stamp -

Something Different (well for me!)

Today I've made a card using PanPastels and Art Journey stamps.  I've had these stamps for a while as I love work people produce using "arty" stamps but I've never used them as this is not my usual style.  Maybe my style could change a little as I loved making this project.

The swirly stamps remind me of curly hair.

Why not pop over to the to have a look at the very inspirational work from my Design Team members.  Congratulations to this weeks winners, it was very tough to choose the Top 3.

I'd also like to enter my project in the Craft Stamper Take It Make It Challenge - as mentioned in my blog last week I adore the new look magazine.

Thanks for popping in I appreciate every comment left xxxx

Sheena Douglass Design Team Samples

Morning everyone - well it's the first day of Autumn - what happened to Summer?  Oh well on the positive side Autumn/Winter leaves more time for crafting as there is less lawn mowing!!

Sheena was on our screens twice yesterday with brilliant shows where she was using Paint Fusion on die cuts, they looked amazing!

I just did a few samples this time which are below but don't forget that Sheena is on again at 11am this morning (just in time for a cuppa).
