Good morning folks, its a busy blogging day for me today, here's my project for our brand new challenge over at PanPastel UK, where our theme is 'Autumn'. As always there's a fab prize of a mask and a PanPastel for our lucky winner thanks to our generous sponsors over at Premium Craft Brands
I've altered a Maltesers box for my DT project. I began by painting the box with black acrylic paint and once that was dry I applied Maimeri Iridescent Paste through a Dutch doobadoo Burlap stencil. I let that dry and then applies some of the fab new Coarse Black PanPastel medium and then Rich gold and copper metallic PanPastels. I sealed the box with Maimeri Glossy Gel medium.
I've filled the box with paper flowers and leaves made using sizzix dies and of course coloured with my PanPastels, you can't see too well on the pic but I've used the gorgeous new pearl PanPastels on the flowers and they have a really pretty shimmer in real life. I've added berries and raffia from my stash to fill in the gaps.
On the top of the box I've used stamps from the Premium Craft Brands A5 Postcard stamp set, stamped with Versamark and then applied Burnt Sienna Shade Panpastel. The butterfly was stamped with versamark and embossed with copper EP, I applied double sided adhesive sheet to the back and then applied orange and green pearl PanPasstels.
