Celebrations at Premium Craft Brands

Good morning my lovelies, don't you just love Sunday mornings? I love pottering around in my pjs while lunch is cooking, must nicer than going to work lol. This mornings project is for our new challenge at Premium Craft Brands where our theme is 'Anything Goes' but the DT were challenged to grab their metallic PanPastels and create something with a theme of Celebrations.


I began with the gorgeous Butterfly Stencil, I think this one is everyone's favourite lol. I inked over it with versamark on black card and then applied Rich Gold PanPastel. I removed the stencil, oversamped with a text stamp in Black Versafine and added some dots of gold glitter glue. I stamped the 'Celebrate' stamp with versamark and embossed with black EP. I made the flowers and leaves with black card, tattered florals and leaves and stamped them all with versamark before applying more rich gold PanPastel. The little roses in the centre were made with Maimrei Light Modelling Paste coloured with more gold PanPastel.

I'm entering this project in the following challenges:
Crafty Catz : Monochrome
Country View Crafts: Monochromatic
Feeling Crafty: butterflies
Red Rubber Inspirational: let your stamping sparkle

Thanks for visiting today

  2. Good morning Claire this is absolutely stunning , I love everything about it.
    Have not used my stencils this way but might have a go later if I have time. It is amazing how we can become blinkered, having the ingredients but only using them in the way you have always used them.
    Hope the weather is not too bad with you and you have a good day
