A new challenge at Premium Craft Brands PanPastel Challenge

Good morning folks, we've got a really fun challenge over at Premium Craft Brands PanPastel Challenge this week,, pop on over and find out about the fabby prize and check out the gorgeous projects from my lovely teamies. The DT were challenged to make an embellishment with a stencil, now I really struggled with this for a start but then I decided to have a play with Maimeri Light modelling paste and my favourite Birds and Leaves stencil (you can find them here)

Now this is an A4 stencil so it was a real challenge to try and use it on this little mdf heart so I used it to make the little birds and leaves. I just used a palette knife to spread the light modelling paste through the stencil on to my craft sheet and left it to try. Once they were dry (I left them over night to be sure) they peeled off the craft sheet so I could use them as embellies on my project. I coloured them with PanPastels but you could also use markers

I gave the heart (from Indigo Blu) a base coat of gesso and then used acrylic paints spplied with a baby wipe. The stamps were a magazine freebie, stamped with Memento Inks, apart from the sentiment which is from Chocolate Baroque.  Once the ink was dry I gave it a coat of Maimeri Matte Medium and popped the stencil embellies on and gave them all another coat of Matte Medium. I used maimeri gold acrylic paint to edge the heart and added some blingy flowers to finish off.

I'm entering this project in the following challenges:

A creative romance: lets get sentimental
All crafts: anything but a card
Bunny Zoe's: hearts/ love
Oooh La La: use a heart
Papertake Weekly: with a heart
Whoospi Daisy: sentiment
