Add some bling inspiration at PanPastel UK

Good morning folks, its inspiration time over at PanPastel UK! You've still got a week to enter our 'Add some Bling Challenge' to be in with a chance to win some gorgeous goodies from our lovely sponsors 'Premium Craft Brands'

I've made a really quick and easy card as i've been pushed for time this week. PanPastels are perfect for those quick cards! I began by applying Versamark ink and then Black Coarse Pearl Medium over a snowflake stencil from my stash. The Pearl medium has a really gorgeous sparkle, its hard to get a decent pic but you can just about see it on this one:

I'd run out of hairspray which I usually use to seal my PanPastels so I had a play around and came up with a mix of Maimeri Gloss Gel medium and water (about 1/3 gloss gel and 2/3 water) and spritzed it over the PanPastels and its sealed it beautifully! 

I cut out the centre to create a frame and layered it up over a little scene stamped with a freebie stamp from Quick Cards Made Easy. I coloured the image with Black Pearl Fine PanPastel Medium and added lots of bling! To finish off I used a white Graph'It shake pen for the snowflakes on the image.

I'm  entering this card in the following challenges:
CRAFT: Winter
Crafty Calendar: all about Christmas
Crafty Sentiments: make it sparkle
Creative Corner: christmas
