I waited untill the background was dried up and than I worked on this fabby butterfly....I colored it with Pearlescent PanPastels and used the Golden Shake it Pen on the edges. Than the sentiment was placed and my card can be send to a dear friend......


The products that I have worked with are:






Claire C I've made a little Christmas canvas using my PanPastels this week. I created the background using Turuqoise, Paynes Grey and Permanent Red Shade Pans. These are very strong colours so I muted them a little by layering printed tissue that I'd stamped over the top with matte gel medium . I added some die cuts that I'd coloured with PanPastels to finish off.

Terry; Lots of fun making a card for a change, The card is made from "old" papers, I Had lots of fun working on the background, using Panpastels, Crackle and offcourse Light Modelling Paste and stencils...


The decoration of my card was created with the sentiment stamped all over the card and with the sentiment Thinking of You I was letting my colleque know that I am thinking of her in the passing of her mother. Last but not least a butterfly. which I colored with Ink and Metallic Pans. 


The products that I have worked with are: 



Claire C I've made a card this week too using some of my favourite shade of PanPastels and of course a little stencilling too. Pans are brilliant for distressing as they are very forgiving, just use a little brown PanPastel around your papers to give a vintage look and the best thing of all, no blending problems!! The butterflies are from Polkadoodles 'Absolute Vintage' set





Tracy Scott - this week I've been playing with a mix of my acrylics, watercolours and my delicious PanPastels. I love mixing my mediums and seeing the effects that they create together.


I love to play with portraits and adore this mix of mediums. They really create a fabulous look. Thank you for stopping by xx

Now back to our new challenge, let's have a peek at the inspiration from the DT ....


Alysha - This fortnight I have created a tag using yellow and orange pan pastels and stamping using versamark and dusting over with the Pans.
Looking forward to seeing your projects, hugs Aly xx




Terry  I 've had a lot of fun with making a gift . The background is made with a layer of Gesso what I 've smeared on the heart first and then when it was half dry there have taken it off again .
Than I worked with Light Modelling Paste and a Roses Stencil and once again I took it half off again.....this way you create a very nice old look. Actually I stumbled on it by accident lol..because it was difficult to place the stencil in the heart.One of the last layers that I played with is a stamp from a Rose. I stamped on top of all the other layers with the Metallic PanPastels and Ink. All around my two hearts I played with heartsy lace.
The aim of my project is to put it down as decoration on a table If you want to see more pictures you can click my name and it will take you to my blog.


Here are some of the products that I have used:





Claire C

 Pans are perfect for making a quick scenic card, they really make light work of this kind of card! I've used some old favourite stamps and added some of the gorgeous new Tropical Stamps from Polkadoodles to create this card, using  my Pans for some summer colour.
