Tag it at PanPastel

Good morning folks, and a big warm welcome to my new followers! I'm back with my second post of the day, this time its my DT project for our new challenge at PanPastel UK where our theme is 'Tag it'. Our lucky winner will receive a fabby PanPastel starter set from Berni, our lovely sponsor from Your Creativity Store.

I've used some kraft resist as a base for my tag, coloured with violet PanPastel and overstamped with a swirl stamp from Indigo Blu, embossed with gold EP. I've added some seambinding and lace, coloured with PanPastel and created some embellies with Maimeri Mediums.

The keyhole was made by mixing Maimeri iridescent medium with violet PanPastel and 'buttering' it over a Chocolate Baroque stamp (from Key to my dreams stamp set) that I'd inked up with black stazon ink. It takes a couple of days to dry properly but I just love the way the medium picks up all the detail!! 

I've added a little metal butterfly (from The Ribbon Girl) which has been given a coat of Maimeri Gesso and coloured with violet PanPastel and a little treasure gold, i've added a little key for his body. The roses have been made by using some of the PanPastel/Iridescent paste in a silicone flower mould, again they take a good while to dry but I think they are so pretty. The gold flowers were made with Maimier Glassy gel and beadazzles, again using a silicone mould.

To finish off i've addded a die cut swirl and stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set.

I'm entering this project in the following challenges:
Crafts and Me: shabby chic
Make my Monday: handmade embellishments
Papercraft Star: handmade flowers

Well my week off work seems to have whizzed by and I'll be back at work tomorrow so I'm going to make the most of my last day of freedom lol. H
Have a lovely day and thanks for popping by

  3. It's a gorgeous tag Claire. Love those little flowers. I've got some of those moulds which I've used with air dry clay and embossing powers. I'll have to try that paste now. I'm suspecting it will make a lighter (in weight) embellishment.
