Mixing it up at Premium Craft Brands ...

Hi there folks, hasn't the last week flown? Its time for a new challenge at PanPastel UK, there's a fab prize up for grabs from our lovely sponsor Berni at Your Creativity Store and as always my talented teamies have created some gorgeous projects to inspire you.


I've made a Christmas card, I used silver PanPastel mixed with water in a mini- mister bottle and spritzed on to some black card, and used my fingers to splatter some more of the mixture on. Then I overstamped with a Stampers Anonymous snowflake stamp and versmark and applied some gold PanPastel. 

I made the little tree from scraps of cream card, I stamped them with a music stamp and versamark and coloured some with black PanPastel and some with Permanent Red, I used cheap hairspray to seal the Pans and then rolled the scraps into little rolls, cut them to size and glued them to my background. I added a pot and a trunk and popped a little red bow on the pot. Now any Cristmas tree has to have some baubles so I added some Doodle Dewdrops and a little bark star that I'd coloured with gold PanPastel.

To finish off I stamped the 'Rockin around the Christmas Tree' sentiment (from Chocolate Baroque), snipped it up and popped it on the card.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
Aud Sentiments: any sentiment
Crafts Too: Vintage Christmas (polychromatic)
Crafty Hands: sparkle and bling
Delicious Doodles: no designer paper

Have a good day, i'm away to tackle the ironing and make a start with cooking Sunday lunch 
Thanks for popping by today
