A fun new challenge at Premium Craft Brands PanPastel UK

Good morning folks, and happy Sunday to you, its a very exciting Sunday for us girlies in PanPastel Land because the lovely Nikky Hall will be on C&C at 2pm demoing all sorts of gorgeous goodies from Premium Craft Brands so don't forget to book your place on the sofa! The scrummy metallic Pans will be star of the show so you really don't want to miss it. We've also got a fab new challenge at Premium Craft Brands PanPastel UK Challenge so pop on over and find all the details as there is a fab prize from Your Creativity Store for our lucky winner and of course some amazing artwork from my talented teamies!

I've altered a little photo frame, it was a very plain boring frame so I got to work with Maimeri Bronze Acrylic paint followed by a layer of Kroma Crackle, once that was dry I added lashings of Metallic PanPastels. The image is a stamp from Stampendous, I just stamped with versarmark and then swooshed over it with a Sofft sponge that I'd been using with Copper and Bronze PanPastels. I added a little glitter to highlight the snowy areas

I layerd a die cut coloured with Light Gold PanPastel and die cut numbers were made with Thermomorph. The little cardinal was also made with Thermomorph, this time in a silicone mould and painted with Maimeri Bronze Acrylic

I'm entering this project in the following challenges:
Charisma: Anything goes
CRAFT: Christmas
Crafts 4 Eternity: anything but a card
LEJ Designs: monochromatic
Penny's Paper Crafty: lots of layers

thanks so much for visiting today, hope to see you again soon
