Something Vintage at PanPastel UK

Hi there, I'm back again this time with my DT card for PanPastel UK, this week our theme is 'Something Vintage' . We're really excited to have the talented Ali Reeve joining us at Guest Designer this week, we're also really pleased to have the lovely Amy Shaw joining the team too!!  I decided to experiment a bit and tried using PanPastels over versamark using a LaBlanche stamp and I was really pleased with the effect. Soooo quick and easy :-)

I've used papers from the P:rima Almanac collection and overstamped with a stamp from Chocolate Baroque 'Lace Fragments' themeplate and versamark ink before applying black panpastel. I've ripped a bit out of the paper and layered it up over some white card stamped with the same stamp, I love this technique, it looks fab and have unashamedly copied it from my CB teamie Judith (pop over and check out Judith's beautiful artwork on her blog). I've added seambinding ribbon coloured with red tint panpastel, black lace, faux pearls, prima flowers and some gems for a bit of bling.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
365 cards: Distressing and tearing
Incy Wincy: Vintage
Joanna Sheen Challenge: remember when
Oldie but goodie: Anything goes (my oldie is my stamp)
Ooh La La: Make  it girly
Paper Shelter: Vintage/shabby chic
Use it Tuesday: 2 hoarded items (my black lace and prima flowers)

Don't forget our lucky winner will receive a fabby PanPastel Trial set from our generous sponsor Berni from My Creativity Store

Right, better go and do something, I've been glued to all the programmes about the Queen so far all weekend lol. Hope you're enjoying the bank holiday weekend
