Red and Green at PanPastel UK

Yeah, another Christmas card (well two actually) and my DT contribution to the PanPastel UK challenge for this week.


The background is just two red PPs blended together then sealed. Twigs stamped with dazzle EP and gently patted with various greens and yellow PPs and sealed again.


Tim Holtz Holly die-cut using brown, green and red card, covered with PPs in appropriate colours, sealed then covered with Rock Candy crackle paint.


The vintage image is from Gecko Galz Old Fashioned Christmas collage sheet.

Red and greens are the colours of the season and if you enter the challenge you are in with a chance of winning a starter set of PanPastels from our regular sponsor 'Your Creativity Store'.

Have a great Sunday whatever you have planned.
See my last post to see what I am doing today ....... so exciting.

PS News of Becca - she was finally allowed home Friday afternoon, ....... so wonderful.
The whole family came round last night and we had a great meal and catch-up together. Considering all the trauma she has had to deal with she was bright and chirpy and wanted to talk about her experiences, which is healthy.
Thanks for all your comments and support, you have really helped me over the past couple of months and I so appreciate it.  B xx
