Love and Romance at PanPastel UK

Good morning folks, how's your weekend going? We're having a nice quiet weekend and bracing ourselves for snow later today but it won't bother me too much as apart from walking the dogs i won't be going much further than my craft room. This mornings project is my DT project for PanPastel UK, i've created a little canvas with a romantic theme. 

I began by sticking a beautiful floral napkin to the canvas with Maimeri Matte Gel Medium, once that was dry I applied White and Magenta tint PanPastels to tone the colours down and then added a little Payes Grey. I used my favourite harlequin template from Crafters Workshop and mixed Maimeri Iridescent paste with some gold acrylic paint and popped some on the canvas. The 'love' sentiment is a Chocolate Baroque stamp, embossed with Gold EP onto a tissue, again i used Maimeri Matt Medium to adhere to the canvas. I made some little hearts from air dry clay and coloured them with Magenta tint PanPastel, then some gilding flakes. The lace, ribbon and beautiful little lace heart are all from The Funkie Junkie Boutique. I've added  die cut swirls, a little pearl buckle and a metal corner. The paper flower was made with a Chocolate Baroque stamp and coloured with Magenta PanPastel.

I'm entering this canvas in the following challenges:
Allsorts: Valentines
Frilly and Funkie: lacey, heartsy valentine project
In the pink: Valentines/Romance
Deep Ocean: love and lace

As always our lucky winner will receive a fab prize of a PanPastel Starter Set from our generous sponsor Berni at Your Creativity Store. If you are stuck for inspiration pop over and check out my teamies wonderful creations, they are such a lovely talented bunch of ladies!
