PanPastels - Pastel Colours

A small offering DT from me today for the PanPastel UK challenge and I mean small because this is a mini canvas 7cm square.

This was made by covering it in vintage sewing pattern tissue paper and lightly painted with white acrylic paint and dry brushed in light pink. When that was dry I blended yellow and white PanPastels over it to create a creamy colour. Next I sprayed it with silver spray and shine then did the journalling treatment of stamping with embossing ink and dabbing pink PP over it then stamping circles in pink and white paint. The butterfly is from a Crafty Individuals pack, the Butterfly Dreams I made on the PC with other bits added from my oddments box.

I hope you will join us with your pastel creations this week at PanPastel UK challenge blog and if you do you could be in with a chance of winning some fabulous PanPastels from Your Creativity Store.

Have a fabulous Sunday and thanks for stopping by to see me.

FSC - Steampunk

My Steampunk DT contribution this week is very masculine. But not so if you pop over to the Fashionable Stamping Challenges blog and see the fabulous inspiration from my great DT sisters.

I started by covering my tag with a page from a steam power book showing a plan of something!! Next a layer of white acrylic paint, then inked over with tattered rose DI. I then put it through the Steampunk embossing folder and covered the raised areas with Iced Spruce DI and weathered wood distress powder. 

The tickets were inked with iced spruce and old paper DIs then stamped with a TH steampunk stamp in walnut stain. The gentlemen are from the Tim H Steampunk stamp set, stamped in walnut stain and then embossed with clear EP.

Love this propeller shape with a nut in the middle of it. These were inked the same as the tickets and I used the TH steampunk set of stamps again.  

A few manly embellishments from the tool box and finito.

I look forward to seeing your creations in the challenge over the next fortnight.

Have a fun Sunday whatever you are doing.
