Anything goes at PanPastel UK

Good morning folks,  how on earth did it get to be Easter Sunday already? And we've put the clocks forward an hour so its British Summer time, well it doesn't feel like it here lol. I hope you're enjoying the Easter weekend, and have seen a little sunshine. My card today is my DT offering for our new challenge at PanPastel UK where our theme is 'Anything goes', so no excuse not to enter this week! As always we've got a fab prize of a PanPastel Starter set for our lucky winner thanks to our lovely sponsor Berni.

I've used a vintage mermaid image from the Gecko Galz (I just love their images!) and applied it to a card blank using Maimeri Matte Medium. I coloured around the image with neutral grey PanPastel and then used Maimeri Light modelling paste and a Crafters Workshop Template to create a brick effect around the image. Once the paste was dry I applied Burnt Sienna and Raw Umber PanPastels to colour the bricks. I added some shells, faux pearls and a little piece of fishing net , Here's another pic:

I'm entering this project in the following challenges:
Clearly Inspired: Anything goes
Happy Campers: add dimensions
Penny's Paper Crafty: anything but a square

Do check out the fab project from my lovely teamies at PanPastel UK if you've got a minute.
Thanks for popping by today
