Good morning, Sunday morning is here again so its time for a new challenge at PanPastel UK and this time we want to see you make an embellishment. As usual there is a great prize for our lucky winner, a PanPastel starter set from our generous sponsor Berni at Your Creativity Store!
I've created a background with permanent red and permanent red shade PanPastels which I've stamped with snowflakes from Chocolate Baroque using Snowcap Pigment ink.
I used coredinations whitewash card and the Holiday Magic M-bossabilities to create the panel. Once I'd embossed the card I sanded it to highlight the baubles. I used white PanPastel around the baubles as I'd sanded a bit too enthusiastically lol.
I used Permanent Red Shade PanPastel on white card for the bauble, another Chocolate Baroque stamp which is embossed with gold embossing powder. The bauble is supended with gold graid
I added white lace and some gorgeous red gingham ruffled trim from The Funkie Junkie boutique and some red ribbon from my stash. I created another embellie by making a bow topped off with a button and some bakers twine.
I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
ABC Christmas: Vibrant colours
Card Mania: embossing
Crafts and Me: Reds
Happy Campers: use bright colours
Papertake Weekly: anything goes
Whimsy Inspiration: Traditional Christmas colours
I love Sunday, its so nice not rushing round getting ready for work and having some time to potter round at home. I'm hoping to do some tidying up in the garden today, have you ever tried sweeping leaves up with a labrador puppy helping?? Lol its certainly fun although it takes about 10 times longer than it would if Barney didn't help lol,
thanks for popping by,
