Anything Creative/Mixed Media Goes at We Love to Create

Good morning (again), my third post today and this time I'm sharing my project for our new challenge over at We Love 2 Create where our theme is 'Anything Mixed Media/Creative Goes' and of course we've got a fabulous crafty prize for our lucky winner from Premium Craft Brands. You don't have to use our products to enter  either so I hope you're going to play along.

I've used shades of Permanent Red PanPastel to create this project and added some Raw Umber to distress everything. I've used my pans to colour the background and added some stencilling using a Dutch Doobadoo chicken wire stencil. I've used my pans on the die cuts and embellies too. The heart and crown are grungeboard, I used versamark ink before my Pans on these as this intensifies the colour.. The butterflies are stamps from Polkadoodles 'Absolute Vintage' clear stamp set, stamped with Potting Soil archival ink onto a scrap of card coloured with Permanent Red Tint PanPastel.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:

Allsorts: anniversaries/special occasions 
Brown Sugar: anything goes
Crafts Galore Encore: anything goes
Craft Rocket: Anything goes
In the Pink: buttons/bows in pink
Sparkles Forum: anything goes
We Love Vintage: vintage romance

Thanks for visiting, hope to see you again soon
