All about paper at Premium Craft Brands

Good morning my lovelies, time for a new challenge at Premium Craft Brands PanPastel UK Challenge and this week its all about paper and card, so its a nice easy challenge. As always there is a fab prize from our generous sponsor Premium Art Brands and of course my teamies have created some gorgeous projects to inspire you so pop along to the challenge blog to find all the deets. I've created a little wall hanging:



The little birdie is stamp from Stampendous, I stamped him on to grey Pastel Board and coloured him with PanPastels and a paper stump. This is one of my all time favourite stamps, he is soooo cute isn't he?


I keeping with our Paper/Card theme I did lots of die cutting with sizzix dies and coloured them up with PanPastels, adding lots of the metallic PanPastels and a little clear crackle paint.

I popped them all on some corrugated card from some packaging which I dry brushed with Maimeri Gesso and sprinkled with a little glitter.
I'm entering this project in the following challenges:
Charisma: Distressed
CRAFT: Christmas
Craft room challenge: vintage Christmas
Crafting with Dragonflies: christmas decor
Crafty Catz: two or more dies
Delicious Doodles: christmas/new year
Southern Girls: embrace your lumps and bumps
Totally Papercrafts: anything Christmas but a card

Eeeeeeeek Christmas seems to coming so quickly, I'm hoping to get the Christmas decorations out today so hopefully we'll be looking very festive before the day is out
thanks so much for popping by, 
Claire xx
