CAS at PanPastel UK

Good morning folks, its the first challenge of the new year over at PanPastel UK and we've got a nice easy one to kick of a fun year of creativity!! Well I say easy, its actually 'Clean and Simple' which is something I always struggle with as I'm definitely a more is more kind of crafter lol. Our lucky winner will receive a fabby prize from our generous sponsors at Premium Craft Brands.

Anyway I've kept it to a minimum with this very quick card:

I applied Maimeri Light Modelling Paste through the Dutch Doobadoo A5 Stars stencil and applied a sprinkle of glass glitter and a dusting of PanPastel Coarse White Pearl Medium.

Once it was dry I stamped the sentiment with Memento Tuxedo Black using a HOTP stamp that I've had for years.

Here's another pic of the stencilling which unfortunately doesn't pick up the shimmer and sparkle at all so you'll have to use your imagination :-)

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
ABC Challenge: A is for anything goes
Card Mania: make it sparkle
Crafty Catz: anything goes
DRS Designs: Stencils
Little Red Wagon: Happy New Year
Simon Says Stamp: anything goes
Speed Craft: Anything goes (twist stencils)
This card was definitely speed crafting as it took me less that 10 minutes to make :-)

Thanks for popping by, have a lovely day and hope to see you again soon

  5. WOW Claire so happy to see you taking part in our Speed Craft Challenge, thank you. Such a wonderful card with your sparkly stars and lovely font on the sentiment.Looks like it took longer than the 15 minutes allowed and am so pleased it took a lot less. Hope to see you on our next one!

    I am a huge fan of Pan Pastels and love the new Coarse Pastels especially they do have an amazing shimmer and glitz to them, have used them constantly since the day i purchased them!
