Go Grungy inspiration at PanPastel UK

Good morning my lovelies, how's your weekend going? Awful weather here so I've been having a play in my craft room and trying to pretend I don't have to go back to work tomorrow lol. I've sooooo enjoyed my week off but at least we've got another long weekend coming up next week so I've got something to look forward to. My project today is for our 'Go Grungy' challenge at PanPastel UK, you've still got a week to enter and our lucky winner will receive a fab prize of goodies from Premium Craft Brands.


I've made an 8x8 card, distressing the edges with Raw Umber shade panpastel and stamping a fabric texture stamp from Indigo Blu here and there. I used a sheet of copier to create a heart shaped stencil and popped that over my card blank before applying Maimeri Light Modelling Paste through a Pronty Stencil.  The LMP is coloured with a touch of Magenta PanPastel. Once dry I went around the edges with Raw Umber PanPastel


The little lady is a stamp from Crafty Individual stamped with versamark and then I applied more Raw Umber PanPastel and layered it up with a tattered angels butterfly. The ginormous sentiment is from Indigo Blu, stamped with Potting Soil Archival Ink, and then distressed with PanPastel.

I've added faux pearls, a seam binding bow, a little rose made from Light Modelling Paste in a silicone mould, the clay heart was left over from another project.

I'm entering this in the following challenges:
Brown Sugar: anything goes
Sister Act: anything goes
Sweet Stampin: No designer paper

Thanks so much for visiting today, have a great day and hope to see you again soon
