Go Grungy at PanPastel UK

Good morning and a very happy Easter to you all. We haven't got anything exciting planned, just a scrummy lunch and then eating lots of chocolate - sounds like a good plan to me lol. Anyway back to business and we've got a new challenge starting over at PanPastel UK and this time our theme is 'Go Grungy'. You don't have to use our products to enter and our lucky winner will receive a fab prize of goodies from Premium Craft Brands!

I've altered a littel canvas using Maimeri Gesso, Light Modelling Paste with a Dutch Doobadoo stencil. I've added some colour with PanPastels in shades of brown with a little copper and gold here and there. The stamps are from Indigo Blu, coloured and distressed with PanPastels and then layered up and attached with a memo pin.

I've made a flower using a stamp from Chocolate Baroque, stamped on to card painted with Maimeri Bronze acrylic paint (my absolute favourite colours, its gorgeous). I've popped a glass cabochon in the centre. I've added paper flowers, a seam binding bow, some die cuts, pearls and a pen nib to finish off.

I'm entering this project in the following challenges:
Artistic Stamper: embossing and texture
Craftitude: anything goes or Spring
Crafty Cardmakers: floral profusion
Everybody Art: anything goes
Love to Create: Vintage romance
Stamplorations: Stamps plus your favourite technique 
Tuesday Throwdown: vintage/shabby chic
(I think using stencils for texture is one of my all time favourite techniques)

Thanks so much for visiting today, hope to see you again soon
