Stampbord on C&C!!

Good morning folks, my project today is a little wall hanging made with Stampbord and PanPastels. Our lovely Nikky Hall is on C&C tomorrow at 10am demonstrating some awesome techniques so make sure you book your place on the sofa. Sadly I'll be at work but I'll be recording it so I can catch up when I get home!

I've used a stampbord ATC and Coaster to create this project. I'd accidentally splashed some black pearl medium on these making another project but I kind of liked the mottled look so I just applied some Pearlescent Yellow and Orange PanPastels over the top. I masked the sun and added some more colour and a little Black fine pearl PanPAstel Medium. Next I set to stamping using stamps from the Premium Craft Brands sets Postcard and roses. Nikky will also be demoing some fab tools to work with your stampbord and I was lucky to have a set so I used one of the fine tools to scratch some highlights here and there. Hopefully you'll see them a bit better in this pic.

I stamped the butterfly on acetate using White EP and then applied Black Pearl medium over the top. I sponged versmark in on the back and added Yellow, Orange and a little Red PanPastel, cut it ou and popped in onto the project. 

To attached the two pieces of stampbord I used red line tape and black ribbon. To finish off I added some black lace and a little pearl trim.
