Musical challenge at FSC

I am taking the chance to build my Christmas card collection by another one this week with my DT piece for the musical challenge at Fashionable Stamping Challenges.

A music paper from MME for the background stamped with holly from Tim's mini holidays, a La Blanche stamp with musical notation and a music score die from Memory Box. Add to them some red Stickles for the holly berries, papers for the collage layers and some embellishments and sentiment.

Looking forward to seeing you over at the FSC challenge blog for a fortnight of musical fun. Even if you can't enter this time round, it is always worth taking a peek at the fabulous inspiration from the most amazing team.

Have a great Sunday, hopefully there is some crafty time available to you to have some creative moments.

Bonfire Night - PanPastels

Well this challenge really got me thinking about representing fireworks and using PanPastels as well. Remember though if you enter the challenge you can use any medium you like.

 I decided on a small 6 x 6 scrap page.
I stamped the row of houses (Crafty Individuals CI-271) using black archival and coloured them with Graph'it alcohol based markers. I love the way these blend together and move around with the clear blender. If you fancy having a try with them they are available from our regular sponsor Your Creativity Store. The colours I used were Mocha, Pink Grey, Caramel and Light Caramel.

Using dazzle versamark I stamped the firework design and went over with pastel shades of PanPastels. I also use some Sakura sparkle pens over the top.

A vintage Brocks Fireworks poster or box lid and a couple of embellishments finished it off.

The photo? My youngest grandaughter last year.

Looking forward to seeing your interpretation of the challenge. Please pop over and seeing the fabulous variety from the team.
