Anything Creative/Mixed Media Goes at We Love 2 Create

Good morning folks, its inspiration time over at We Love 2 Create  so you've got another week to enter our challenge and be in with a chance to win some crafty goodies from those lovely people at Premium Craft brands! I've been playing with my PanPastels and Twinkling H2os to create this project. I love the contrast between the sparkle of the paint with the velvety matte finish of the PanPastels although it doesn't show up too well in the pic.

To make this I took a canvas board and applied shades of Turquoise and Bright Yellow Green PanPastels. Next I made a kind of mosaic using stampbord tiles to fit my stamp (Antique Songbird from Indigo Blu). I find it easiest to assemble my stampbord onto strips of double sided tape which holds it together to decorate the piece. I stamped the image with black Archival Ink and then painted with my H2os. I used the same colours to splatter the canvas board and coordinate with the stampbord. To finish off I've added a seam binding bow.

I'm entering this project in the following challenges:
Artistic Stamper: anything goes
As you like it: anything goes
Brown Sugar: anything goes
Crafty Ribbons: anything goes
Indigo Blu Challenge: all that sparkle

Thanks so much for visiting today, hope to see you again soon
