A new challenge and a giveaway at We love 2 Create

Good morning folks, its challenge time at We Love 2 Create and as always our theme is 'Anything Creative/Mixed media goes. We'll have lots of lucky winners though cos as well as the fabby prize from Premium Craft Brands all the DT are giving away a postcard that they've created for this weeks challenge! I've got a few spare pieces of stampbord too for my lucky winner.

As a new twist on Love to Create Challenges, the DT thought it would be nice to share our pan pastels love with you all, so for this challenge each DT member is giving away their project; a postcard. The DT are taking this opportunity to say thank you for following both the challenges and us, so have created this RAK (random act of kindness) giveaway. One lucky commentator will receive my postcard at the end of this challenge (Sunday 28th June) so that gives you 2 weeks to enter both the challenge and also comment on my blog. The winner of my postcard will be both announced on the Love to Create challenge blog and here on my own blog.
I have made my postcard by ..... your blurb ....
Remember to be in with a chance to win my postcard, leave me a comment on this post and I will pick a random winner on Saturday 27th June with the winner being announced the following day. Don't forget to visit the other DT because if you do not win my postcard, you might win one of their fabulous postcards instead.

My post card is kind of tag shaped but t really is a postcard honest, I've been hoarding it for ages but thought it would be perfect for this weeks project

I began by applying my PanPastels to the postcard, blues at the top and greens at the bottom, blending them in with my sofft applicator. I cut a circle in a scrap of copier paper to add the sun and then set too stamping. I used some free Sheena Douglass stamps from a craft mag and Memento Inks to stap the images. 

I used a pencil eraser to remove the PanPastel from the butterfly and then added some White Fine Pearl PanPastel Medium to give it some shimmer. I used a white Graph'It Shake pen to add highlights to the flowers.Then I added some eyelash fibres, pearl trim, a purple bow topped with a pretty button to finish off.

I'm entering this project in the following challenges:
Artistic Stamper: summer is on its way
Crafting Musketeers: shades of summer
Crafty Creations: all creatures great and small
Creatalicious: butterflies 
Creative Knockouts: ribbons and bows
Simply Papercraft: anything goes
Through the purple haze: bright colours

Thanks so much for visiting today, don't forget to leave a comment if you'd like to win my postcard and some stampbord!!
