Good morning folks, its time for some inspiration for our 'Pink Pink and more Pink' challenge at PanPastel UK, you've still got a week to enter to be in with a chance to win some fab stash thanks to our generous sponsors Premium Craft Brands and of course you don't have to use PanPastels to enter. I've altered a little bird house for my inspiration project.
I began with a coat of Maimeri White Gesso and then once that was dry I coloured with base with Permanent Red Tint PanPastel. I used the lovely Spirograph stencil with Maimeri Light Modelling Paste to add some texture, the LMP dries really quickly so it only takes 10-15 mins to dry. Next came more Permanent Red Tint and a little Light Gold PanPastel.
The stamps are all from Chocolate Baroque, some old favourites! I stamped them on tissue paper with black archival ink and added some colour with Permanent Red PanPastel and then cut them out and stuck them on with Maimeri Gel medium.
I added a little black PanPastel around the edges. I used a Sizzix die cut for the trim on the roof, cut from black card and coloured with Light Gold PanPastel and topped with some iridescent bead trim. I cut down the offcuts from the roof and used them to surround a glass cabochon for the little hole in the bird house. To finish off I've added some black lace around the bottom edge.
