Photo Inspiration from PanPastel UK

Good morning my lovelies, Sunday morning already so we've got a brand new challenge starting at PanPastel UK and this week our challenge is an inspiration photo by the very talented photographer Les Arnot so pop over and be inspired! As usual our lucky winner will receive a fab prize of a PanPastel Starter set from our lovely sponsor Berni from Your Creativity Store.

I've taken inspiration from the beautiful lillies in the photo and altered a little wooden heart. I gave the heart a coat of soft cream emulsion paint and stamped the images (From Sheena Douglass) with Memento tuxedo black before colouring with Graph'It Markers. I then painted the flowers with a generous layer of Maimeri Glassy Gel and left it to dry. Next i coloured the background with permanent green and tint PanPastels and overstamped with a text stamp and gold stazon. The Glassy gel gives a fabulous resist technique, I really love this stuff :-)
To finish off i've edged the heart with some renaissance treasure gold and added some seam binding ribbon.

I'm entering this project in the following challenges:
Crafting for all seasons: anything but a card
Hotshot Crafts: anything but a card
Love to Create: anything goes
Tuesday Alchemy: anything goes

I'm waiting for the plumber to visit, Barney our black furry bundle of mischief managed to pull a radiator off the wall yesterday and damaged the pipe so we've had to turn the heating off. Fingers crossed he'll come nice and early as its far too cold to manage with heating brrrrrrrrrrrrrr! 
Thanks for visiting today, have a lovely Sunday
