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


Home Sweet Home at FSC

I am not here today,  I am off out to have an inky, painty, grungy time with the fabulous Andy Skinner. Can't wait to have a whole day learning new techniques and I am going to meet the fabulous Laura Liddell - As Happy As ....  We both have booked 5 days with Andy, one Sunday every month till March 13 at The Stamp Attic - 
I wonder who else will be there??????

My second post for today is for Fashionable Stamping Challenges and a theme of 'Home, Sweet, Home'. 
This got me thinking and the rest of the DT too and we brainstormed lots of ideas, so it would be great if you go take a look at their fabulous work.

I have made a hanging with lots of stamping and embellishing.

The background is done with layers of stamps, inks and Goosebumps, which was great fun to do. Colours used are coffee, rose madder, spun sugar, victorian velvet and walnut stain.

Each piece has been tied together with wire, embellished with lots of metal pieces painted with aged bronze patina paints and I added some vintage images.

I hope to pop round and catch up with everyone after dinner tonight and then I have got to get myself packing as we are off for a holiday on Thursday to Lanzarote. Just hope we will get some sun.

Take care.
