Good morning folks, Sunday morning already - isn't this year whizzing by? The nights are getting dark so much earlier so it won't be long until Autumn is here but we've had a lovely summer and hopefully we'll have a few more weeks of warm weather before we have to think about getting our winter woolies out. We've got a new challenge staring over at PanPastel UK this week and this time our theme is 'Pastel Colours'. You don't have to use Pans to enter but we love it when you do :-). There's a fab PanPastel Starter kit from our lovely sponsor Berni at Your Creativity store up for grabs for our UK winner so don't miss out on a chance to win
I've altered a little wooden box for my DT project, I gave it a coat of Maimeri Gesso and then added some texture with Maimeri Light Modelling Paste applied through a stencil and added some Kroma crackle. Once it was dry I added some colour with Violet Tint and Magenta Tint PanPastels and highlighted with lots of Renaissance Treasure Gold.
I've added a stamped sentiment (using just the word Friends from an Indigo Blu stamp) in an ideology Ornate Plate. The paper flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts except for the larger roses which I made with my Britannia petal die and coloured with PanPastels. I've added lots of little gems for some sparkly and a die cut butterfly.
Inside the box I've used stamps from Indigo Blu. The background was stamped in versamark and coloured with Pans and the sentiments were embossed with Gold EP
I'm entering this one in the following challenges:
Flutterby Wednesday: Embossing
Indigo Blu: Shabby Chic
Jellypark: things with wings
Oldie but goodie: embossing

Hope you're having a good weekend. Now my craft room is all nice and tidy I think I ought to go and mess it up a bit lol. Thanks so much for visiting today
