Good morning my lovelies and a big warm welcome to my newest followers! Its great to have you along for the inky painty ride lol. This morning post is a project for our new challenge at PanPastel UK where our theme is Pink and White. We've got a fab prize for our lucky winner thanks to our generous sponsors at Premium Craft Brands and you don't have to use our products to play along so I hope you're going to join us. I've made a wall hanging using Stampbord ATCs, I love stampbord as it takes in so beautifully but it works like a dream with PanPastels too! You've got to try this stuff if you've never used it before, its a-ma-zing!!
I began by blending my PanPastels starting with Magenta Tint at the top and working through Magenta, Magenta Shade to Magenta Extra Dark. I fixed them with a bit of hairspray and set to stamping usiing some of my favourite stamps from Premium Craft Brands (links below) and some old faithfuls from Chocolate Baroque. Some of the stamping was done with versamark and then blending Magenta Shade/Extra Dark Pans over the top, I stamped the words with Potting Soil Archival Ink.
Next I stamped and embossed the hearts using versamark and Gilded Ivory Sparkle and Sprinkle EP. The butterfly was stamped and embossed on acetate, layed on adhesive sheet and PanPastel applied to the back.
To finish off I've edged the ATCs with versamark and rich gold PanPastel and joined them with a length of lace before adding lots of lace, pearl trim, ribbon and a little resin rose.
