PanPastels - Girly/Mother's Day

Hi Bloggers

Happy Sunday, I hope you are enjoying a bit of crafty time over the weekend.

Today sees a PanPastel UK challenge that focusses on a girly or Mother's day project. Mine is a straightforward card using DP with girly colours and embellishments.


I embossed a piece of mirri-board and painted it all over with gesso and before it fully dried I rubbed some of the paint off to reveal the outlines of the butterflies and then dabbed my PPs over it. I sprayed it with fixative to make sure none of the pastel colour comes off. Another experiment in using PPs that I am pleased with.

Please come take a look at the challenge blog if you haven't already seen it, you could be in with a chance of winning a trial set of PanPastels worth £11.99 from our fabulous sponsor Your Creativity Store. They have a wide range of artist materials and well worth a look.

Enjoy whatever you have planned for today.

Happy crafting.

luv and hugs {brenda} xoxo
