Bling it at PanPastel UK

Good morning and happy Sunday, hope it's a good one for you. This is the first of two scheduled posts today as I am off to The Stamp Attic for an Andy Skinner workshop finishing off the techniques book we hadn't got made. Later pop back to see the first of my May tags for Tim's tags for 2013.

Today at PanPastel UK we have a new theme and want you to show us some bling.


I created the background very simply by running some white card through an embossing folder and blending PanPastels over the top, it picks out the design so easily. I used Burnt Sienna Tint and a little Raw Umber.



I gathered together some simple papers and embellishments to create the focal point.


The frame was covered with distress stickles dry glitter and then I rubbed raw umber PanPastel over the top. The sentiment is one of the Tim Holtz remnant rubs.

I will be back later with my second of Tim's tags of 2013 entries. See you then.
