Good morning folks, we've got a new challenge starting at PanPastel UK and this week we've gone all patriotic with a 'Red, White and Blue' theme. As always there's a fabby PanPastel starter kit up for grabs thanks to Berni, our generous sponsor from Your Creativity Store!
It was a great excuse to have a play as i'd been wanting to mess around with tartan style background with my PanPastels. I used Permanent Red and Ultramarine Blue pans, applied with a Sofft flat sponge bar. I used my ruler to keep the lines straight and then used my ruler again to create the white lines, this time i used my dinky little battery operated pencil eraser to remove the colour and complete the pattern.
I used an assortment of stamps from Crafty individual and the Artistic Stamper along with a gorgeous image from the Gecko Galz and layered everything up, adding some pearls here and there and a little rose.
To finish off I've added a little threepenny bit charm at the top of the tag and some lace, seambinding ribbon and a button with a little twine bow at the bottom of my tag.
I'm entering this tag in the following challenges:
ABC Challenge: lovely lace

Charisma cardz: Flag colours (UK)
Creative Craft Challenge: red white and blue
