A new challenge at Premium Craft Brands PanPastel UK Challenge

Good morning folks, how's your weekend going? I always  love Sundays but this one is even better than most as I don't have to go to work tomorrow :-) Its also time for a new challenge at Premium Craft Brands PanPastel UK challenge and this week we're colouring embellies! There's a fab prize up for grabs from our lovely sponsor Berni at Your Creativity Store so hop on over and find out all the deets, you don't want to miss the gorgeous artwork from my teamies either!

I've made a little 8x8 canvas, i got it from the work and I wish I'd got loads as its a lovely size to work on. I began by adding Panpastels in Magenta Shade and Extra Dark, with just a light dusting of Rich Gold PanPastel. Next I used a Pronty Mask and Maimeri Light modelling paste which I coloured with more metallic PanPastels . The main image is a Prima Doll stamp, coloured with Graph'It markers and again I added a touch of Rich Gold PanPastel to add a shimmer to her skirt and jacket. I gave her some wings, made with a PaperArtsy stamp and then got busy adding lots of die cuts. 

I added the birdcage, again coloured with gold PanPastels, the ribbon and lace was also coloured with my PanPastels. Next came lots of little die cut butterflies coloured with Magenta shade PanPastel and finally the rose. I made the rose with tattered florals die cuts embossed with a dotty folder, again I added Magenta Shade and gold pans, you can see the shimmer a little better here:

I'm entering this in the following challenges:
A Little bit crafty: sparkle and shine
Crafters Cafe: lots of embellishments
Crafty Creations: dies/punches
