Bright Colours at PanPastel UK

Hi again, time for a new challenge at PanPastel UK and this week our theme is 'Bright Colours'. PanPastels will be on Create and Craft at 3pm today so I've got my place booked on the sofa to watch :-). If you fancy trying out PanPastels, check out the bargains at Your Creativity Store as Berni has a fab 10% off deal at the minute!

I had a lot of fun making this tag, I've used Magenta and Diarylide yellow for the tag and then a little black through a Crafters Workshop Template. The sentiment is from the new Artistic Expressions themeplate by Chocolate Baroque.
To make the flowers I die cut some Clearly for Art film with my tattered florals die and gave the flowers a coat of multi medium. Once this was dry I coloured the flowers with PanPastels and added some rock candy crackle paint. Once this was dry I splashed on some drops of twinkling h2o's in yellow and hot pink. Once dry I overstamped with a large crackle stamp (again from Chocolate Baroque), I heated the Clearly for Art and shaped the flower petals  and layered them up. The smaller flower has a black button in the centre. The larger flower has a flattened bottlecap filled with Ranger black enamel accents, while this was wet I scraped some more PanPastel onto the surface and left it to dry. Once it was dry i added a layer of glossy accents to seal the PanPastel. 

To finish my tag off I  used some pink and black velvet ribbon, black lace, some dots of black enamel accents and some die cut swirls.
I'm entering my tag in the following challenges:
C.R.A.F.T: handmade flowers
Craft your passion: Just sentiments
Paper Pretties: New technique (the flowers)

As always our lucky winner will receive a fab prize of a PanPastel trial set from the lovely Berni at Your Creativity Store so I hope you're going to join us to be in with a chance of winning
