Christmas inspiration at PanPastel UK

Good morning my lovelies, its inspiration time at PanPastel UK and you've still got loads of time to play along with our 'Christmas Challenge' which is running until 3rd January. As always there's a fab prize for our lucky winner from Premium Craft Brands

I've had lots of Christmassy fun altering this wooden ornament that I got for 50p in the poundshop sale last year, what a bargain!! I stencilled the brick over the letters with Maimeri Light Modelling Paste and then once it was dry coloured the bricks with Burnt Sienna and a little Raw Umber PanPastel. I've coloured the Dutch Doobadoo fence and lanterns with more PanPastels (applying versamark ink first to get more depth of colour). 

The Dutch Doobadoo snowflakes were coloured with PanPastel Course White medium for a gorgeous shimmer. The 'Christmas  Trees' are actually Dutch Doobadoo Laser Art Ferns, coloured with PanPastels and turned upside down before being decorated with glitter glue. I added the stamped images (from Lili of the Valley, coloured with my Graph'It markers of course).

 To finish off I created some more snow along the bottom of the scene and on the letters by applying Maimeri Light Modelling Paste and sprinkling on lots of crushed glass glitter

I'm entering this project in the following challenges:

A Crafty Mess: anything goes/ traditional Christmas colours
Allsorts: last minute gifts
Bearly Mine: Christmas decoration
