Metallic Inspiration at PanPastel Challenge

Good morning my lovlies, and Happy Mothers Day to all the mums out there. I'm hoping to be spoiled and pampered today although as my boy is usually in bed nursing a hangover until middle of the afternoon I think breakfast in bed is a bit unlikely lol. Today's project is an inspiration project for our Metallic challenge at PanPastel UK, you've still got a week to enter and there's a fab prize from goodies for our lucky winner too!! As always my teamies have created some amazing artwork so if you've got a min do pop over and have a look.

I've used stamps from Artistic Outpost and Chocolate Baroque, stamped with Potting Soil Archival ink. I've used Raw Umber, Gold and Ultramarine PanPastels to distress the layers and then mixed Gold PanPastel with Maimeri Light modelling Paste and applied it through a Dutch Doobadoo stencil. I've also coloured the ribbon with PanPastels and to finish off I've added a button and  a little birdie charm

I'm entering this in the following challenges:
Allsorts: use those dies
A Vintage Journey: say it with words
Crafty Ribbons: ribbon and button
Fussy and Fancy: shabby chic
My Sheri Crafts: anything but a card
Sugar Creek Hollow: make your own background

Thanks for stopping by, have a great day and hope to see you again soon
